About Mrs. Monteiro

      Welcome to 3rd Grade!  I am so excited and grateful to be your teacher!  My name is Melissa Monteiro.   My family and I moved to Castle Rock two years ago from Austin, Texas and have never looked back.   This will be my 11th year teaching.  I have taught Kindergarten, 4th and 3rd grade.   This will be my third year as a third grade teacher here at Sage Canyon.  

    I want to share a little about myself with you.  I grew up as the daughter of an Army soldier and as a result moved around a lot.  I received my bachelor’s degree at Sacred Heart University in San Juan, Puerto Rico.  I served 8 years as a Military Police Officer and retired 9 years ago.  I have a wonderful husband and two incredible and very active boys.  My boys are ten and eight years of age.  Both of my boys attend Sage Canyon and love every minute of it!  I also have the cutest and cuddliest fur babies, Fenway and Doc!  When I have free time you can find me cheering on my boys at various sporting events.  We love the outdoors, hiking, traveling, and the Red Sox!

    I truly believe that education is a team effort.   Every child can be successful and show growth. We each have to do our part, as well as, give our best effort in order to help our students continue on this journey of academic success and development. The best way to contact me is via email is melissa.monteiro@dcsdk12.org.  Please contact me with any questions or concerns.  My door is always open.  I can’t wait to start this journey with you!
