Monika has a passion for helping kids find the best fit for their educational journey and dedicates her time at SAA to helping prospective families get to know our school and navigating each step of the admissions process.
Monika eventually also ran her own successful private practice in Los Angeles servicing a wide variety of school districts across southern California. Monika specialized in offering support assistance inside and outside of the classroom, participating in IEP and 504 Plan development meetings, evaluations, assessments, and training teachers on how to support their students’ growth.
Eventually Monika returned to the midwest continuing to work with students, assisting middle schoolers with the transition to high school and 12th graders making their move to life after high school.
Monika joined SAA admissions in 2018 and also serves as our school registrar. Families often meet Monika in the early stages of their school research. She offers individual tours, parent meetings, and facilitates shadow days and assessment experiences. Both prospective and current families work closely with Monika through their SAA journey.
As the parent of a gifted learner, Monika seeks to serve as a resource to families. “Our school community is a special one, in which the needs of gifted learners are truly understood and valued. I love helping families through the entire admissions process and am always only an email away.”
