I am Monica Winans. I teach 3rd grade at Sacred Heart School. This is my 27th year teaching. I attended Delta State University where I got my degree in Elementary Education. I have taught both 2nd and 3rd grades. I taught 16 years at a public school in Desoto County before transferring to Sacred Heart. I attended Sacred Heart as a child from K to 8th grade, so this school is very near and dear to me. I am married and have 2 daughters, 2 cats, and a dog. My oldest daughter is a junior at Hernando High this year, but attended Sacred Heart from 1st to 8th grade. My younger daughter is in 8th grade this year at Sacred Heart and will attend Hernando next year for high school. My family and I enjoy trips to the mountains, the lake, and watching movies. Some of my other hobbies include running, hiking, walking, and reading.
