Blessings! My name is Shacarol Monteiro. I am a licensed therapist in the state of Texas with a concentration of children and adolescents. I was born and raised in the DFW metroplex and attended 4 universities in 4 years before graduating from University of North Texas. I received my Master’s Degree from Abilene Christian University and adore working with families and children achieve their maximum potential. I believe when we truly are present with our students and love them unconditionally, they are more eager to learn and I am excited to partner with you and your family!
My name is Ms. Haley Schilly and I am the new middle school math teacher here at St. Mary of Carmel. My family is originally from St. Louis, Missouri, though we moved to Charlotte, North Carolina about 15 years ago. I received my bachelor's degree from the University of North Carolina at Chapel Hill, where I studied education policy and psychology, and I am currently working toward an M.Ed. from the University of Notre Dame. I love reading, running, baking and, of course, teaching. I am so excited to be part of the SMC community and am very much looking forward to getting to know all of your families this year!
My name is Danielle Lundstrom and I am the Kindergarten teacher here at Saint Mary of Carmel Catholic School. I was born and raised in Southern California then made the move to Phoenix, Arizona with my family. I attended the University of Arizona and lived in Tucson where I obtained my degree in Early Childhood Education. My husband's career brought us to Dallas in 2016 where we have loved every bit of becoming Texans. I have always had a love of teaching young learners and have found a great deal of happiness and purpose in teaching Kindergarten. I feel extremely blessed to be apart of this wonderful community.
