About Ms. Montanez

Hello there:)

Thank you for visiting my websiteWink

I have been teaching for about five years now. Previously I taught at Avocado Elementary School grades 2nd and 3rd.  Then, I came here to South Dade Middle School which I taught 4th grade and this is my 2nd year teaching 5th. Before teaching I was working at Ocean Reef Club as a receptionist and I didn't realize that teaching was my calling in life until I started tutoring.  Instantly, I fell in love with the interaction of children and teaching them.  I went back to school and received my degree in Elementary Teaching from Barry University school in 2005. Teaching has been the most rewarding and enjoyable career for me:) I enjoy when  children learn and are motivated to learn.  I have one son Daniel and I recently got married so I am now officially Mrs. Arbella:))

 I will continue teaching and hopefully one day I will earn my masters in elementary reading. 

I love each and everyone of my students:) 

Let's have a wonderful and rewarding school year:)
