Marquez, Monica

     Welcome to a wonderful 2017-2018 school year in fourth grade!  My name is Mrs. Monica Marquez and I will be your child’s teacher this year. This is my third year at Robert E. Lee at  Elementary.  I graduated from the University of Texas at El Paso with my  Bachelor Degree in Education (4-8 Generalist).  I also received my Master's Degree in Special Education from the University of Texas at El Paso.
      I am looking forward to having your child in my class, and meeting you all. Their enthusiasm and energy offers great challenges and I look forward to my year with them and with you too!!!  I want this fourth grade year to be a happy as well as a meaningful one for you and your child. This is a very important year as your child learns more responsibility and gains more independence throughout the year.
      Parent communication is also very important to me.  I believe that good communication between teachers and parents fosters success foryour child’s learning and school year. Please
