My Education & Teaching BackgroundBy way of introduction, my Bachelor of Art degrees are in Classical Literature, Philosophy and Theology from the Franciscan University of Steubenville. I was a pastor and served within the scope of private education for many years. (As many already know, benefits in private schools leave much to be desired.)Eight years ago, I decided it was time to pursue my passion for teaching on a full-time basis in the public schools arena. I pursued and obtained an M.A. in Secondary Education from the University of Phoenix. For a short period of time, I served as a substitute teacher in Leander I.S.D. and supplemented my income as a barista at Starbucks! I soon began working at Forbes Middle School where I helped with Content Mastery, Inclusion, and SPED. In October of 2012, I began working here at Benold Middle School as a full-time classroom teacher.Over the past 20 years, I have enjoyed teaching students with many different needs (from gifted and talented to special needs) in many different settings. I am certified in English Language Arts (4-12) and Spanish (K-12).Class/Course InformationSeñor Monclova teaches Spanish I (High School Credit Course).
