Welcome

  • Welcome Eagles!!!!! 

    My name is Mrs. Rue and I am the Monroe Elementary School Counselor.  This 2021-2022 school year is my 3rd year as a school counselor and my first year at Monroe! I am so excited to support your child at Monroe! I graduated from Northern Illinois University with a Master of Science in Education in Counseling (M.S. Ed.). Prior to coming to the Everett School District, I worked in Higher Education and Student Affairs, providing academic, personal/social, and career support to traditional and non-traditional students. Additionally, I taught a Career Development class for undergraduate students at the university. Prior to working in higher education, I served as a substitute teacher and paraprofessional for diverse learners. I am very excited to serve as your partner in your student’s education at Monroe Elementary!

    Some of my hobbies include spending time with my amazing family, thrifting, cooking, improving my gardening skills, traveling, and camping. I love Tacos from the Taco-Book Taqueria in Everett and Beecher’s Flagship Cheese! They are my absolute favorite! Everett is home 😊

    Please reach out if there is something I can do to help, or answer any questions. Click on my name below to send an email or call :)

    June 2020

    The slogan for the Corona Pandemic seemed to be "We are all in this together." We certainly are all in this, our struggle with racism, together and maybe for once we will actually take action all together. I know action looks different for everyone so for that I offer the following.

    For those who want to do, read, think or somehow be involved in the current conversation - movement please consider the resource below. It is well organized and laid out to facilitate however much involvement you are looking for for yourself or for your family.
