Washington Elementary | Preschool
My name is Monica Carter. I am originally from Norfolk, NE. I received my Bachelor’s degree from the University of Nebraska-Lincoln (Go Huskers!) in elementary education and early childhood development. I am currently working on my Masters In Education through Doane- specializing in Curriculum and Instruction and specializing in Early Childhood Education.
I am married to Eric Carter. He works for Farmer’s Mutual Insurance of Nebraska as a claims adjuster. We moved to North Platte in 2000. Our children, Jackson, Mason, and Addisyn all attend North Platte Public Schools. Our family also includes our precious Goldendoodle, Buddy.
I currently teach Preschool at Washington Elementary. I truly believe students need to be in an environment that is developmentally appropriate. Learning through play is essential to building students fine motor, social, problem solving, and academic skills leading to a strong foundation for young learners!
