Mrs. Monica Beus
Welcome to Kindergarten! I am so happy to be here at Val Vista Lakes Elementary and EXCITED to be teaching Kindergarten! It is my desire to partner with parents to bring the best Kindergarten experiences to my students. It is so rewarding to watch my students make tremendous progress throughout the year. I am determined to give each of my students a solid foundation in reading, writing , math, as well an enthusiasm for learning.
I was raised in Tucson, AZ and decided to attend ASU...GO SUN DEVILS! I earned a Bachelor's of Arts Degree in Elementary Education with a minor in Spanish, then returned to ASU 16 years later to obtain my Master's in Curriculum and Instruction. I have previously taught Pre-K, Kindergarten, First Grade, and Third Grade. I have also spent four years as a Reading Coach in Gilbert Schools.
In my spare time I like to sew, ballroom dance, and spend time with my family....especially my two grandchildren. I am so happy to be part of the VVL community!
