Mrs. Monica M. McGuire
I grew up in Gordon County going to Swain, Ashworth and then graduating from Gordon Central in the first graduating class of 1989. I began Kennesaw State University after my son turned two years old. I graduated in May of 2003 with a Bachelor's Degree of Science in Early Childhood Education. I have since received my Reading Endorsement and Mathematics Endorsement from Northwest Georgia Regional Educational Service Agency (NWGaRESA) and ESOL – English as a Second Language Endorsement through Pioneer RESA. Currently, I am working towards a Masters Degree in TESOL from Kennesaw State University.
I am married to Tony McGuire of Adairsville. We have one son, Bryson, who graduated from Georgia Cyber Academy. As a family, we enjoy traveling and have visited most of the United States from Maine to California, and Florida to Washington including Alaska. We have also visited much of Canada and the Caribbean Islands, including Cozumel, Mexico. We enjoy experiencing other cultures and spending time outdoors.
This will be my fourth year as a teacher in ESOL. I have worked as the ESOL classroom teacher many times. I am greatly looking forward to applying everything I have learned in the classroom. I will be joining my students while they are in their classroom. We will be working on improving each ELL’s (English Language Learner) proficiency in listening, speaking, reading and writing in English.
