Welcome to Mrs. Monks 5th Grade Classroom where...
"Life Begins Outside Your Comfort Zone"
Hello! My name is Jacquie Monks. I have been teaching at Maywood for five years as a reading specialist, a sixth grade teacher and most recently as a 5th grader teacher. I have been fortunate to be in the field of education for 18 years. Prior to being a stay-at-home mom for 10 years, I taught 4th grade, 6th grade at the middle school, high school math, and I was a high school assistant principal. I have lived in the Maywood community with my family for the past eleven years. Three of my four children are Maywood Tigers, and they are currently in the 5th grade. My oldest is in 8th grade at Canyon Park Middle School.
Fifth grade is such a fun year! We will learn some very cool things about the history of our country, conduct awesome science experiments, take on challenging math problems, improve our writing and challenge ourselves to be well rounded readers...Wow!
If you have any questions or concerns throughout the year, please do not hesitate to contact me.
