Welcome to Mrs. Monasterski's About Page.
I want to tell you a little bit about myself and how I became a teacher of English as a Second Language.
It all started in the winter of 1999 when my family and I moved to United States.
Growing up in the new country wasn't easy. I struggled a lot with the English Language acquisition and was enrolled in E.S.L. classes all throughout my middle and high school careers.
After graduating, I went to Kean University where I studies Business Management. I graduated from Kean in 2008 with Bachelors in Business Management. Throughout my college career I was actively involved with athletics and ran Cross County, Indoor and Outdoor Track for all 4 years.
After graduation I realized that I wanted to make a difference in the world, so I enrolled back at Kean for my degree in teaching English as a Second Language.
I couldn't have made a better decision.
Being an ESL teacher has truly been a wonderful experience. I think the best part of it is being able to relate to the struggle students go through when they move to a different country. I know exactly how it feels for students who move to United States and cannot effectively communicate with their peers, teachers and other members of their community.
This is going to be my fourth year at Lawrence Township Public Schools. I am looking forward to an amazing 2016 - 2017 year at Lawrence High School !
