Monique Chatman is a proud native of Jacksonville, Florida. Mrs. Chatman is a graduate of Florida Agricultural and Mechanical University, where she received her Bachelor of Arts in Elementary Education. She then went on to complete her Master of Education in Educational Leadership from the University of North Florida which has positioned her to be the current Principal of Venetia Elementary, which has yielded unquestionable success due to her leadership. Aside from her secular achievements and accomplishments, Monique’s desire has always been to be an example among others that models Christian values enriched with the fruits of the Spirit. She does that through mentoring youth and participating in a renowned Christian Performing Arts Company. Her favorite scripture is Proverbs 3:5, “Trust in the Lord with all your heart, and lean not on your own understanding.” This scripture connects with the mantra she lives by, if you allow God to direct your path, He will never lead you astray. Monique is an encourager, motivator, but most of all a virtuous woman.
