My name is Mrs. Monica and I will be your child’s Pre-K Teacher this year. This will be my 8th year working at Kooken Education Center, but I have a total of 10 years of experience as an Early Childhood Educator and four years of experience as a teacher assistant, which two of those years were spent here at Kooken. I have a total of 10 years here at Kooken and 13 years in an early childhood classroom. I graduated with a degree in Social work, from the University of Texas in Arlington. I have received my alternative certification in Early Childhood and I’m currently certified as a bilingual, ESL and special education teacher. I also enjoy spending time decorating, swimming, and spending time with my family. I love traveling, learning about different religions, and heritage.
