Mrs. Lori Padgett
Welcome to the 2023-2024 school year! I'm looking forward to a great school year, and will be available for students who may still need help to "catch up" from the craziness of the a couple years ago. This year, I will be teaching Sheltered Instruction Math classes, including Algebra 1, Geometry, and Algebra 2. I will also be covering for one of Mrs. Wagner's Geometry classes to start off the year until she returns from maternity leave. I will also continue to work as our school's math coach, helping any students who need enrichment and/or extra assistance in math classes. You may see me pop in to some of your classes to teach or help out with small groups.
Be sure to join the appropriate Google Classroom right away, if you haven't done so already! Looking forward to seeing everyone soon!
I am available every morning, starting at 7am. Feel free to stop by with any questions you may have; I will be in my room (702). If you have questions after the end of the school day, feel free to email me or send me a private message on Google classroom.
A LITTLE ABOUT ME...
I've been teaching for over 20 years and this is my 20th year at Monmouth! I've taught different levels of both math and Spanish classes over the years. I love teaching our ESL students because it's great seeing the progress my students make, not only in math, but in learning and speaking English as well!
I hold my Master's degree in Educational Leadership from Kean University and hope to one day continue my career in education as a school administrator. I earned my Bachelor's degree in both math and Spanish from Muhlenberg College. I'm also taking classes to become certified to teach ESL classes! Even though I don't currently practice, I'm also a licensed Physical Therapist Assistant!
I've coached cross country and ice hockey in the past. Now, I spend my free time with my husband and my 13 year old son. I enjoy relaxing in the pool and going out in our boat in the summer. In the winter, I love going ice skating and have been skating since I was 4 years old!
I'm also a member of many committees within the school, including the Public Relations Committee, DATA team, School Improvement Panel, and many more!
