Mrs. Monique Mesa Platz


Welcome to First Grade! My name is Monique Platz and I’m excited to be your child’s teacher this school year! I’m entering my 6th year at Pathfinder, my 12th year working with first graders and my 17th year in education! I’ve been happily married to Tom for 21 years and have two children, Daniel (18), and Marissa (13). We have 2 shelter cats Princess and Hazel,  and our Corgi, Sam, to finish out our happy family!

Every grade is special in our school, but in my opinion, first grade is the best! Nothing matches the energy and eagerness of a first grader! Every year brings excitement and opportunities! I’m so excited to have a chance to work with your first grader and can’t wait to see the progress we make this year!
