Megan Coalson-  Co-Teacher

Megan Coalson, Explorers' Teacher, has a Bachelor's degree in Anthropology and just completed working on her Master's in teaching English to speakers of other languages. Megan grew up in Texas, but spent summers in Santa Fe with her grandparents. Her love for New Mexico triggered her decision to move to Albuquerque and attend U.N.M.. Before working at preschools for over six years, Megan taught English for two years at a university in Inner Mongolia, China. She also teaches online English class to children in China. In her free time, Megan enjoys traveling, gardening, and taking her dog for walks in the Bosque.


Monica Munoz- Co- Teacher

Monica brings a wealth of teaching and life experience to Elevation and the Explorers’ class. Born in Santa Fe, Monica’s family moved to Silver City and settled in Albuquerque when she was 7. She most recently served as Coordinator of Drop-In Care at the Jewish Community Center of Greater Albuquerque, where she was a teacher for 12 years. In addition to being a busy mother of one grown daughter and two younger boys, Monica is completing coursework toward her B.A. in Early Childhood at New Mexico Highlands University.

Monica carries the spirit of her home state in her passions outside of school, where she finds time to get close to the land. She loves the outdoors, especially hiking, and nurtures quite a bounty in her garden (cabbage, zucchini, tomatoes, and corn this year). Over the summer, Monica even took part in an archaeological dig of the Kuaua Pueblo at the Coronado Historic Site, where she used the augering method to uncover fragments of pottery from deep in the earth.
