Mona Huizar

I’m excited about working with you and your child in the 2017-18 school year! I’m passionate about teaching and building a community of learners in my classroom.

I approach my work as an educator with great humility, understanding the awesome responsibility that it comes with. I believe in the importance of teaching the whole child. The role of the teacher is not only to teach, but also to help monitor and shape the social and emotional aspects of life at school.

I pride myself in being collaborative with my colleagues, in being a life-long learner, and in developing a love of learning in my students.

I hold a bachelors degree from UCLA, as well as a Masters in Educational Leadership and Administration. I am also a National Board Certified Teacher.

Besides being a teacher, I am the mother of two: Sarah is a recent college grad and John is in his fourth year of medical school.

My experience as both a parent and a teacher has given me perspective and insight that I bring with me in my role as an educator.

When I am not teaching, I enjoy hiking, yoga, reading, traveling, and spending time with friends and family.

I look forward to working with you to make 3rd grade a very positive and successful year for your child!
