About Monica

I have recently retired from Bay District schools with 35 years of teaching experience. I have taught grades 2-4 during those years with the majority of time being spent in 3rd grade. However, my last teaching assignment landed me in 4th grade for the past five years. I am familiar with Bay District's curriculum along with the Florida Standards which were modeled after Common Core. During my last year of teaching I also started tutoring. I find it very rewarding working one on one with students to teach, review, and enhance the skills being taught in class. Being a teacher myself, I know the importance of being in close contact with the classroom teacher to stay updated on what is being presented in class and how the student is doing.

Although I have never been a 5th grade classroom teacher, most of my tutoring has been with 5th grade students who were struggling in math. The math curriculum now is so very different, and many parents are uneasy about helping their children with math. I have the knowledge of the "new ways" that math is being taught.

Since most of my classroom time was spent as a 3rd grade teacher, ELA was the main focus for most of my teaching career. As the years go by, so do the ways of teaching and testing students in this area. Many times grammar and spelling have gone by the wayside thanks to technology. I believe a good foundation in learning is to not only read, but to write in a way that shows understanding of the content.

I look forward to hearing from you so that we can form a partnership in learning!
