Hello! ¡Hola! Jambo! Namaste! Ghaw luh a ghay! Welcome to Monroe! My name is Betsy Moats, and I am excited to work with EL’s again this year as they participate in rigorous lessons and strive to achieve high academic standards. The EL team is focused on culturally responsive teaching that creates an environment where students feel socially connected and intellectually safe.
I have an accounting degree from Texas Christian University and a secondary education degree from Peru State College. I started my teaching career with the YMCA International program in Arequipa, Peru. Since then, I’ve had the great privilege of traveling all over the world, learning about different cultures and bringing that information into the classroom. Listening to my students’ stories and learning about their cultures is one of my favorite parts of this career. This will be my 11th year at Monroe.
Outside of school, I love spending time outdoors with my husband and twin daughters.
