Monica Carman

Welcome to Mrs. Carman's 1st grade class. I am excited about the 2017-2018 year!

Teaching is an absolute passion of mine! I am so excited to work with you and your child. It's going to be a year full of fun, learning, and lots of adventures and I can't wait to see what the year has in store for us! I thought you might like to know a little about me.

I am married to my wonderful husband, Jeff.  We have nine children between the two of us.  Their ages range from 7 years to 23 years old.  They take up most of my free time, but some hobbies that I enjoy are playing basketball and softball.  

I grew up and lived in Massillon, Ohio up until the summer of 2016 when we moved to Summerville, South Carolina. I went to Massillon Washington for high school and graduated from Kent State University in 2013. I am an only child, I guess that's why I have nine children. 

This will be my fourth year teaching, second in the classroom.  I absolutely love teaching this age group!  It is my mission to instill a love for learning in my students. I attempt to teach with a passion for my subject so that my students develop a desire to become life-long learners.  Please let me know if you have any questions and concerns. It is so important to keep communication open between us and I would love to talk to you whenever you feel the need. I look forward to a great year together!
