Dr. Monica D. Diggs
Welcome to North Middle School! My name is Dr. Monica Diggs and I am your child’s English Language- Arts teacher for the 2020-2021 school year. This is my 24th year in education, my 16th year in the Hazelwood School District, and my 13th year here at North Middle. Prior to coming North, I worked at Kirby Middle School, Riverview Gardens Central Middle School, and St. Louis Public Schools. I am a wife, and mother of three teenagers, all three of whom are former North Middle students and graduates of Hazelwood Central High School. I also have a pitbull named Cassius, who is my spoiled brat! When I am not teaching and learning, I enjoy reading, watching Cardinals baseball, and exercising. My two favorite quotes are "Stand up for what you believe in, because if you don't stand for something, you will fall for anything," and "It takes an entire Village to raise a child!" This year, with all that is going on we are certainly in unprecedented times as we start the school year off virtually. This is new for all of us and we are going to be learning and getting through this together. I am excited about being a part of your village this school year and look forward to working with you all!
