Monica Wilkins joined the Meridian staff in August 2017 as a special education instructional assistant. Monica received her bachelors degree in education from Texas State University and is certified EC-4, English as a Second Language, and K-12 special education. She worked as a special education teacher for several years in Round Rock ISD. Since that time she has been working in several educational programs… including the Austin Dog Alliance’s Pet Therapy Program. Though she knew of the school beforehand, she became familiar with Meridian by bringing her dog Max to be part of our Reading Dog Program. She also is the Education Coordinator, Humane Education Teacher, and the Rescue Reader Program Coordinator for the Williamson County Regional Animal Shelter in Georgetown.
