Thomas, Monica

 Welcome to 4th Grade!

I am very grateful for being able to return to Western Hills.  This will be my 9th year teaching third grade.  I received my Bachelor's degree in Elementary Education with a concentration in English from the University of North Carolina at Wilmington.  I have been working towards my Master's degree in Special Education from the University of St. Thomas in Houston.  I'm halfway though!!  Prior to teaching in El Paso, I have taught in North Carolina and California. I have three children, a new granddaughter and have hosted exchange students from 6 different countries.

I feel that the education of our children is the product of a team effort among student, parent, teacher, and administrator. Thus, I will communicate through notes, phone calls, progress reports, and conferences.  Students will keep track of homework assignments in their homework folder/agenda. Please review the agenda daily and initial. If you have any questions or notes for your child’s teacher, there is a place on your child’s homework sheet for you to communicate with me.

My conference time is 1:00 - 1:45 daily.  Please allow 24 hour notification as I may already have a prior meeting.
