Monika Dempsey

I graduated from the University of Portland in 2007 with a Bachelors in Elementary/Middle Education and a Math endorsement.

I am beginning my ninth year of teaching! This will be my third year teaching 4th grade in Oregon. Before that, I taught 5th grade in Seattle for 6 years.

I was born and raised in Santa Clara, CA, an area known as “Silicon Valley.” The oldest of three children, I attended Catholic elementary and all girls high school in the Bay Area before moving to Portland for college.

I am a huge Seahawks fan! When not cheering for my team, I love playing with my godchildren, solving logic puzzles or sudoku, camping, exploring Oregon, playing the ukulele and piano, traveling, and learning how to cook new dishes.

I am so excited to learn, pray, and grow with my students and the SJA community!
