My name is Desiree Monges and I am 5th and 6th grade bilingual science teacher at Collegiate Academy. I have personally experienced the meaning of empowering a child with the necessary skills to be successful in the little tasks and more demanding ones.
My students are the force behind my will. Everything they have done or not done, pushes me to keep digging for better ways to serve them. Their "Needs" force me to challenge myself, to become more creative and resourceful.
I have learned that in today's world, we play many roles in a child's life. I want to continue providing for my students a safe place where their academic, social and emotional needs are met. I want my students to look at each other and see what success looks like. I have the pleasure to work alongside dedicated, committed, and talented Administrators, teachers, and staff who were always willing to support me and guide me.
I am a proud El Paso native and proud Texas Tech graduate with a Bachelors of Arts in Spanish and a minor in History. I have enjoyed living on the island and being a part of this amazing community. I am a dog lover and love getting to come home to my three fury children Rosie (lab), Charger (shih-tzu) and Reina (great dane). In my free time you will find me doing crafts or attending different sporting events on the island or in Houston.
