I am brand new to Monnig this year and am so excited to join the Monnig family as one of the counselors.  I have been in education for 20 years and school counseling for 6 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 6 (almost 7) and 4.  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.
This year has been off to a great start, and I have loved being at Monnig so far!
I am the counselor for the 6th grade last names beginning M-Z and all of 8th grade.
