My name is Monica Ocasio. I have been teaching at Sauganash for four years. The first two years, I taught K-2 special education and am currently teaching 7th and 8th grade, which I absolutely LOVE! I was born and raised in Aurora, Illinois. I am the youngest of three. I have older identical twin brothers. I have been married for 15 years. I met my husband while serving in the United States Marine Corps. We have three children, Orlando 13, Noe 12, and our sweet Emma Grace who is almost 2! In my spare time, I enjoy going to the park and library with my daughter and binge watching Netflix with my kids!
