Mrs. Monica Bond

I am looking forward to another great school year filled with learning and laughter! First grade is a special time for each child to grow their curiosity, engage in dozens of fun activities, and challenge themselves to reach for the stars.
Over the past 9 years as an educator, my passion has been helping students achieve their individual, social, emotional, and academic goals/needs. It is essential for my students to feel valued and welcomed into an environment that fosters excitement in learning.
I am thrilled to begin my 4th year as a first grade teacher at Island Park Elementary.  I work in collaboration with a talented team of first grade teachers. Previously, I taught 6 years in a private all-day kindergarten program. 
I have a wonderful family who enjoys skiing, boating, and playing at the park. Ashley is 8 months old and loves to giggle, climb stairs, and crawl after her sister. Brooke is now 3 years old and enjoys painting, dancing, and playing with friends.
