Ms. Rudi Monson
Hi, I'm Rudi Monson! I'm eager to get to know all of you as this academic year gets rolling. Here's a little about me…
I've come from a varied background in the field of education. I spent ten years teaching middle school math as a classroom teacher in Chicago Public Schools. During that time, I also achieved National Board Certification in Mathematics.
Next, I spent five years as an alternative educator, homeschooling my kids and collaborating with other alternative-education families in the Lawrence community. I thoroughly enjoy exploring what education can look like outside of the traditional classroom experience.
Then, I had the opportunity to teach Early Childhood at the Lawrence Arts Center, focusing on play-based and arts-based learning to meet each student's social, emotional, and academic needs. Two years of playdough and glitter was a blast!
And now, I'm HERE! Back to my roots, classroom-based math instruction. But this time, I have lots of ideas and new perspectives on how we can do this. Email is the best way to talk with me outside of school hours, and I'll do my best to respond within a day or two.
We'll have a great year, and I can't wait to learn with all of you!
