Welcome to Mrs. Monaco's First Grade Class

Mrs. Monaco  

Welcome to first grade!  My name is Mrs. Monaco and I will be your first grade teacher in room 8. 


I have been teaching first grade at Prairie Wind since 2002.  I truly love teaching first grade, it is a very exciting time!  I graduated from UNO with a specialization in reading in 2001.  Reading is my passion!  I love to read in my spare time and it is my favorite subject to teach. I hope to pass on my love of reading to your child. I am currently working on my masters degree to become a reading specialist.  At home I also like to spend time with family. 

I can't wait to start the new school year getting to know you and your child. If you ever have any questions please feel free to contact me anytime.  You may call the school number below and leave a message or email me.  I check my email often throughout the day.
