First Grade Teacher
Pathfinder Elementary

Welcome to First Grade! My name is Monique Platz and I’m excited to be your child’s teacher this school year! I have enjoyed working and teaching students since 1995, working in both public and private schools in the Kansas City area. In 2013, I had the great opportunity to begin teaching in the Platte County District and working at one of the best schools in the Northland, Pathfinder Elementary. Nothing beats being a Pathfinder Pirate! 

Every grade is special in our school, but in my opinion, first grade is the best. Nothing matches the energy and eagerness of a first grader! Every year brings excitement and opportunities. I’m so excited to have a chance to work with your first grader and can’t wait to see the progress we make this year!
