Monica Grisez


1st Grade
Welcome to Valley Elementary School!
Mrs. Grisez's 1st Grade Class

     I am excited to be teaching first grade again this year at Valley! Although most of my teaching career has been in Kindergarten, I have realized that teaching First Grade is where I am meant to be! In First Grade we still embrace the love of incorporating music and movement in learning, but also have the ability to take on more complex challenges such as STEM projects, reader's theaters and technology based learning activities.
      I hold a Bachelor’s degree in Early Childhood Education from Hood College and a Master’s degree from Hood College in Curriculum and Instruction.  In addition to teaching, I enjoy spending time with my family, reading, gardening, cooking, and scrapbooking.  I enjoy assisting young learners develop a love of learning. I look forward to a new year full of exploration, investigation and discovery!
