Welcome to Carrollton Elementary!

I am Monica Koen, the proud Principal of Carrollton Elementary! I have served as a teacher, an instructional coach, an assistant principal, and principal in CFBISD. I hold a Bachelor of Arts in Business from Penn State Elementary, a Masters of Educational Leadership from University of New Haven, and a Masters in Educational Administration from Lamar University. I am married to my amazing husband Kent and have a little boy, Austin. We currently live in Denton and enjoy spending our weekends outside near a pool!

Our staff prides itself in providing a strong academic foundation for all students. As the principal, I look forward to reinforcing the expectations for academic excellence, high achievement, and building positive experiences for all students. I hope each child comes home talking about how great the school is and how wonderful the teachers are this year. I encourage you to ask your student(s) each day to tell you something learned at school or maybe even about a new friend.  This dialogue increases the learning rate and also makes the family stronger.  Our staff works diligently night and day to ensure that your child has a first rate educational experience.  As we strive for academic excellence, I personally challenge you to be a part of this experience as well.

I believe in positive and open communication and encourage you to contact me if you ever have questions, concerns, or comments. Please feel free to call, email, or stop by my office any time.

I am looking forward to a great year guiding hearts and growing minds!
