Kindergarten Teacher
Pathfinder Elementary

Welcome to Kindergarten! I am so excited to have your student in my class this year. My name is Kerry Monize and I am a Kindergarten teacher at Pathfinder Elementary.  I taught kindergarten for 4 years in the Saint Joseph School District and began teaching in the Platte County School District in 2014. I am so excited to be a part of all the great things going on in this district!  I have a Bachelors of Science in Early Childhood Education from Park University and an early childhood education teaching certificate. I love working with young children to encourage their love for learning and exploration. It is so much fun to watch how much they grow from the beginning to end of the year. We will have a great year of learning!

My husband Derek and I have identical twin boys, Desmond and Knox, that were born April 2016. We will be adding another little boy to our family in August 2022 and we have a little fluffy dog named Wicket!
