Dr. Rachel Monárrez received a B.A. in History (1993) from UC Irvine an M.A. in Education (1995), and a Ph.D. with an emphasis in Urban Education (2010) from Claremont Graduate University.  

Entering her 23rd year in education, Dr. Monárrez spent almost two decades educating students in the Pomona Unified School District as a classroom teacher, professional developer, and instructional leader.  The overwhelming majority of her students were English learners and she found great joy and fulfillment in supporting her students’ academic achievement.

Dr. Monárrez works endlessly to foster a culture of equity, academic excellence, and high expectations for all learners. Working collaboratively with all stakeholders, she supports an environment of innovation and high expectations.
