Degrees and Certifications:
Mrs. Monica Charnell
I'm excited to be working with the gifted population. This is my nineteenth year teaching here at Anthem School, and I really enjoy this community!
After graduating Summa Cum Laude from Arizona State University with a Bachelor of Science in Finance degree and working as a Corporate Trust Officer for a national bank in Phoenix, I decided to remain home while my three sons were young. Then I obtained my post baccalaureate teacher certification from the University of Phoenix (UOP) along with my gifted endorsement. I have since earned my Masters of Education in Curriculum and Instruction from UOP and continue to enjoy learning as much as I can.
My sons are now young men, and I'm fortunate to have two curious grandsons, a four-year old and two-year old who are exploring the world. I love discovering and learning new things! I have always loved school and enjoy teaching students who also want to learn and grow as much as they can.
