     My name is Monica Samour and I am a returning teacher to Higley High School.   I received my Bachelor's Degree in Education from New Mexico State University, where I also played tennis on a full-ride scholarship.  I received my Master's Degree in Curriculum and Instruction from Arizona State.  I am ecstatic to start my fifteenth year of teaching and to do so as a Knight of the Higley Kingdom is  an honor.


    Originally from San Luis Obispo, California, I have resided in Arizona since 1994.  My husband, Robert, is a Civil Engineer with the Arizona Department of Transportation and I have two children, Sienna and Spenser. As a young girl I enjoyed school immensely and developed a love for reading and learning that remains with me to this day.  I hope to share that love of learning with all my students in the hopes that their thirst for knowledge is a never ending journey.
    Welcome to the Kingdom, Knights of the Freshmen Court!   This year may not always be easy, but keep these words in mind, "It is our choices that show who we truly are, far more than our abilities." 
    Thank you Professor Dumbledore.
