Welcome to the Monnig family!  I believe that Monnig Middle School is a great place to be where great things are happening.  I am so proud to be a member of this community.  I have been in education for over 20 years.  I graduated from Baylor University with my education degree and received my masters in counseling from Tarleton State University. I love working with middle school students.  I believe middle school is a challenging time, but also an exciting time as students are figuring out who they want to be.  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 .

Hello, Monnig Mustangs! My name is David Morgan, and I am so excited about joining the team here at Monnig Middle School. I am currently in my 19th full year as an educator, and this is my 4th year as a counselor. I have joined Fort Worth ISD this year after gaining experience from Arlington ISD, HEB ISD, and Birdville ISD, and I am thoroughly impressed with the direction FWISD is heading. My role as a Professional School Counselor at Monnig MS is to provide a guidance program with four components:  

  1. Guidance Curriculum 
  2. Responsive Services 
  3. Individual Planning 
  4. System Support 

For a more personal look at my story, I graduated from The University of Oklahoma and Texas Woman’s University (Yes, men have gone to TWU since 1972 :-) ). I love sports, and participating in my kids activities (watching mostly). I have 2 dachshunds, 2 cats, and a fish. Thank you for visiting my counseling page, and please contact me if you have any questions. 

I am the counselor for students with last names that start with A-L.

Community in Schools

Hello Mustangs! My name is Mr. Cantu. I went to the University of North Texas, where I studied social work. This is my first year at Monnig and I am excited to be here! I work for Community in Schools (CIS). CIS is a program that helps students remove barriers to their success. The areas I can help with include:

1. Supportive Guidance and Counseling

2. Health and Human Services

3. Parental and Family Engagement

4. College and Career Readiness

5. Academic Enhancement and support

6. Enrichment Activities

I will work with around 88-90 students who I will case manage and work with regularly to help reach the goals we set for the year. I accept referals from parents, staff, and students themselves. However, I am not limited to only helping students on my caseload.
