Some interesting things about me....
Hi! My name is Monika Balogh-Saccone and I currently live in
Milford with my fiance Tim and two wonderful children Alyssa Love and Trevor Michael.
I have two little Chihuahuas Daisy and Princey who also keep me very busy!
I have been teaching for more than 18 years, and love every
minute of it. I started my career in New Haven, CT. where I
taught second and third grades. After that I joined the
Mathewson School family in Milford teaching fourth and then
third grade for 10 years, followed by Pumpkin Delight School
teaching third grade for 5 years. I am so excited to now be a
part of the Orange Avenue School community teaching your
I currently have a Bachelor's Degree in Psychology and
Elementary Education, and a Master's Degree in Elementary Education. I also have my
Sixth Year Degree in School Administration.
I knew since I was a very young child that my destiny was to
become a school teacher. My grandparents knew it as well, after I made them play school
with me almost every day during my summer vacation as a child.
Mission For The Class
My mission for every student is to be motivated to learn
something new every day. Also for each child to always feel
special and unique. Our classroom is a place to feel comfortable to share ideas and experiences.
