Mary Beth Monks

I have lived in the DMV all my life and was raised in Germantown, MD. I have worked with children of all ages from early childhood to school age for 15 years.  I am very excited to work at the Sherman Early Childhood School and hope to bring my experience and love of working with our youngsters to our school.  I have my 90 hour certification along with many other certifications that have helped me accomplish my goals. My hobbies are spending time with friends, horseback riding, art activities, and volunteering for non-profits such as Family Services Inc.
