Welcome to Mrs. Cornwell's Class!
My Name is Mrs. Monica Cornwell. I am a 1st grade teacher at Alexander Elementary. This will mark my 5th year of teaching. In the past, I have taught 5th grade but this year will be my second at Alexander Elementary! I am excited to make this my best year yet!
I grew up in Illinois with my parents, two brothers, and twin sister. I moved to Iowa while I attended St. Ambrose University, which is where I met my husband. We were married last July and moved to the Iowa City area!
In December of 2012, I graduated with a Bachelor of Arts in Elementary Education from St. Ambrose University. This year, I am beginning to work on my Master of Arts in Elementary Education through the University of Northern Iowa. I am so excited that I will be able to apply my new learnings in the classroom!
