My name is Elissa Gutierrez. I have been teaching in the Des Moines Public School District for the past 18 years. I have been at Monroe for the past 7 years. I currently teach Title-I In-Class Reading and Math for second grade. My job allows me to travel from room to room and collaborate with a great group of teachers. I have two daughters that I spend a lot of my time with. I enjoy watching them play soccer, basketball, volleyball and dance!
