Degrees and Certifications:

Brenda Monterrosa

My name is Brenda Monterrosa. Two adjectives to describe me would be empathetic and inquisitive.  This is my twelfth year as a bilingual teacher, ten of those years were in a kindergarten classroom. I graduated from University of North Texas with my bachelor’s degree and from Texas A&M Commerce with my master’s. My husband works at Apollo, Jr. High. I have an eight-year-old daughter and ten-year-old son. Although I was born in Dallas, Texas, my parents are both from Guatemala.


I enjoy watching students challenge themselves and reach new heights of learning. I love discovering good books and instilling that passion for reading in my students. I strongly believe in higher education and would like to go back to school to earn a Doctorate in Psychology.


I am thrilled to be at Wallace Elementary. I look forward to building relationships with colleagues
