This is my second year to Monnig, and I know it will be even better than last year!  The Monnig family is great community.  I have been in education for 21 years and school counseling for 7 years.  I have worked at many schools in Crowley, Castleberry, and, of course, Fort Worth ISD.  I have always loved working with kids and enjoy helping middle school students learn how to use their strengths to resolve their problems.


I have two little girls ages 7 (almost 8) and 5.  They are wonderful and challenging all at the same time.  I love being a mom.  I also have a dog and a cat, but I am not a cat person (This will be the only cat I ever own.).  I went to Baylor University, and my dad still teaches there.  So, I grew up in Waco, Texas. I love all things Disney.  Now that I have kids, I get to see the movies in the theater!  I also love going to movies, but my husband and I don’t get to do that much anymore.  I attended graduate school for counseling at Tarleton State University.


I love working with middle school students.  I believe middle school is a challenging time, and I hope to help all Monnig students realize their full potential in all areas of their lives.


I am the counselor for students with last names beginning M-Z .
