    Hello Spartan Families!
     
    Welcome to 7th grade Language Arts. I am so excited for the 2018-2019 school year and am looking forward to another year here at Sossaman Middle School. This will be my sixth year teaching and my fifth year at Sossaman. I have taught both 7th and 8th grade Language Arts and am eager for another great year of teaching 7th grade! 
     
    I am a proud graduate of Higley High School (Go Knights!) and I love the fact that I get to teach in the district that shaped me. 
     
    I have always had a strong passion for reading and writing and just about anything to do with grammar! I studied journalism at Arizona State University and after a few months of working as a Social Media Coordinator using my undergraduate degree, I decided to shift directions and pursue a career in teaching.  I went back to school for my Master's Degree while also teaching full-time. I graduated from Grand Canyon University with my Master's in Secondary Education in April 2015. 
     
    I  love interacting with my students, building positive relationships, and watching them learn and grow throughout the year.
     
    On a personal note, I am married and my husband I have an adorable dachshund named Sophie LuLu. She is the definition of a lap dog and is our littly baby! When I'm not at work I enjoy traveling, playing and teaching piano, reading, writing, thrift-store shopping, practicing yoga, attneding Zumba classes, going to the movies, playing board games, learning photography, and watching reruns of my favorite TV show, Modern Family. 
     
    With your partnership, it is my goal to make sure every student has a successful learning experience in my class! Assignments will be accessible through Edmodo throughout the year. Should you have any further questions or concerns please do not hesitate to contact me. I can most esaily be reached by email at monique.seleen@husd.org 
     
    Let's make it a great year!
