Ms. Fitzgerald

  Welcome to an exciting year in third grade. My name is Monica Fitzgerald and I am privileged to be your child's teacher this year. This year is my 35th year of teaching, and my 26th year at Randolph Heights Elementary School.

Prior to my position here, I taught at another elementary school in St. Paul for five years and at a parochial school for another three. My experience has been in grades one, two, three, and four. I received my teaching degree from Winona State University in 1986, and earned a Masters degree from the 
University of St. Thomas in 1995. Aside from really liking the job I get to do every day, I  enjoy my life outside of school as well.  I love reading (surprise!), running, travel,  good movies, baseball, chocolate and cheesecake - not necessarily in that order.
My husband, Brian, and I have 3 children: Erin, 33, Tommy, 31 (and wife Pam), and Andrew 29.  Oh, and we also have a dog.
Nellie is a schnoodle (part schnauzer, part poodle) and she's just over 5 years old.  She fills the house with lots of fun and helps us get past our "empty nest syndrome".   
 I look forward to a fun and exciting year!
