All About Me!

Hello! My name is Catherine Monaco. I am the UPK teacher in room 114. I taught Pre-K from 2008 to 2018 at St. Joseph's College. I have teaching certifications in General Education (Birth-2nd Grade, 1st-6th Grade) and Special Education (Birth to 2nd Grade). I also have a Master’s Degree in Literacy and I am currently working towards my teaching certification in TESOL (Teaching English as a Second Language).

Last year, I took a year off from teaching to study Greek, volunteer, spend time with my family and substitute teach in Kindergarten to 8th grade. I have four children and only have two left at home. My youngest is 14. I have a dog named Lucy. I love to travel, garden, read, build things, face paint, ski and have fun!
