I teach 2nd Grade at Sassarini School. I have been teaching in Sonoma Valley for 29 years. I have my teaching credential and BA in Child Development from Chico State University. While teaching in Sonoma I obtained my CLAD credential. I am married to Pete Monga, a teacher at Saint Francis Solono. I have 2 children, Nicole and Bradley. Nicole just finished her masters at Gallaudet University in Washington DC and has accepted a job at a Deaf School in DC. Bradley is a Junior at Cal Poly in San Luis Obispo majoring in electronic engineering. Pete has a son, Josh, that lives in Arizona. I enjoy running, camping, hiking, swimming, kayaking, boardgames, and spending time with my family.
