Monica Bonnell-Lene’
First/Second Grade Teacher

I am blessed to be joining the Kid Stars Rising Academy. I am so excited to join such an amazing team and to work with each of you and your children. It is my goal to educate, encourage, and love every child on an individual basis according to their academic needs in a way that will help them reach their goals and their full potential in all areas of the curriculum. I was lucky to attend Galveston University during my senior year of high school then transferred to graduate Lamar University in 2005 with a Bachelor Degree in Interdisciplinary Studies. Having graduated top 1% of my class I was invited to pledge Kappa Delta Pi. I have been an educator for 15 years collectively across the states of Texas, Louisiana, California, and North Carolina. The past seven years I have worked at Morganton Road Elementary gaining experience in Kindergarten-3rd grades and was named Teacher of the Year in 2018. God has blessed me with my fiancee Jamie Scott, my son Lane, my adopted daughter Donna, three step-sons, Dolen, David and Adam, and a beautiful grandbaby named Landen. Thank you for welcoming me into the Academy. I am very grateful and super happy to begin this journey with you and your family.
