Degrees and Certifications:
Mrs. Monica Aplin
My name is Monica Aplin. I am so excited to be the new Librarian at Pine Grove School! I have a Master of Arts Degree in Educational Media from the University of South Alabama (Go Jags!) and a Bachelor of Science Degree in Elementary Education from the University of Mobile (Go Rams!). Upon beginning my career, I taught First Grade at Perdido School for 1 year and then taught Second Grade for 3 years before taking some time off to pursue an advanced degree and be home with my children. Before becoming the librarian at Pine Grove, I served as the librarian at the math and science magnet school in Mobile for 7 years.
I am a lifetime resident of Bay Minette and absolutely love living in the Delta. My husband of 18 years, Erik, and I have 2 children. We live on a small farm and have a menagerie of animals, including 2 dogs named Radar and Molly, 2 horses named Paisley and Dandy, 2 cats named Skipper and PomPom. My hobbies include reading, gardening, riding horses, and spending time with my family and animals.
My favorite picture book is The Giving Tree by Shel Silverstein and Anne of Green Gables by L. M. Montgomery.
