Degrees and Certifications:

Mrs. Monica Avila

This year is my 22nd year working at Montessori School 31. I have taught at different grade levels and I am very pleased and delighted to teach in a Pre-K and Kindergarten Class (Pre-Primary Grade Level) for eight consecutive years. 

I hold a Bachelorette Degree in Elementary and Special Education and a Masters Degree in TESOL (Teaching English as Second Language) from Mercy College at Dobbs Ferry, NY.  I also hold a Teaching Certification for grades Pre-K through 6 from the State of New York and have completed a Montessori Training for ages 3-6 and 6 through 9 from CMTE, New York. 

Please feel free to contact me via email at 

I look forward to building a strong relationship with parents to have a productive, engaging, and fun learning experience for our students.
