Degrees and Certifications:
Hello! My name is Domenica Montesinos and I am so excited to be a part of the Nelson Eagles as a Kindergarten teacher.
I grew up in Prospect Heights and attended school in Districts 21 and 214. I graduated from Northern Illinois University in May 2019 and I received my teaching certification for Pre-Kindergarten through Third grade, Special Education and English as a Second Language endorsement to better support my students.
In my free time, I love exploring and finding new hobbies. I enjoy painting, trying new restaurants, attending food and art fests downtown, and I love being with friends and family. My mom is half Italian and half Pakistani, my biological father is African American, and my Stepdad is Mexican. My background has definitely shaped the way I view the world and the experiences I've had. I am so proud of all of the cultures I represent and I look forward to learning about all the ones present in our school and district.
I can't express how excited I am to be working with you and your child at Nelson School. My mom is a former Nelson Eagle and I am a proud to be one too!
