Educational Assessment Program Manager
Monica is a fierce advocate for what she believes in—once she sets her mind to something, there’s no stopping her. This was the case during her eight-year career as an elementary special education teacher in Title I schools, advocating on behalf of students with special needs to ensure every child is given the necessary supports and opportunities to be successful. Monica brings that same drive for success to Hager Sharp as the educational assessment program manager, supporting the National Assessment of Educational Progress (NAEP) state coordinator program review. She uses her passion for education, paired with her experiences as a teacher, to support client needs and provide perspective on the challenges and hopes of teachers and students.
Monica earned a BA in Child Development from Spelman College and an MED in Moderate Disabilities from Boston College. Outside of the office, you can find Monica watching all things 90 Day Fiancé or chasing after her mischievous Whippet mix dog, Beaux.
Traitor to her MD roots, Monica is a Cowboys fan and obsessed with candles.
