Ms. Lara Monette

I have been a special education teacher for 19 years in the Elementary, Middle, High and Adult and Community Education settings. From each place, I have developed relationships with students and their parents and guardians that I will always cherish. Of all these settings, High School was where I found my niche. That is why I feel so blessed that I am now a part of the Camden High School family. As I have a sibling with special needs, I understand how difficult the family may feel in navigating through life and be treated as everyone else. Therefore, I feel that I have an advantage in being an advocate for families.


My undergraduate is in Special Education and masters is in Divergent Learning;both degrees are from Columbia College. I am in the process of earning my doctorate degree in education administration with an emphasis in psychology. However, I have found that my experience has taught me more than all schooling.
