Ms. Desire B. Cox
My name is Desire B. Cox. I am an ESE Teacher here at Punta Gorda Middle School. I teach World History, Civics, US History as well as Unique Skills: Social Emotional Skills to 6th, 7th and 8th graders. I have lived and worked in Charlotte County for the last 14 years. Most of those years have been working with students with disabilities helping them transition from high school to post-secondary training and eventually a career. I graduated from Plymouth State University in New Hampshire with a Bachelor's degree in Anthroplogy/Archaeology and recently earned a Master's in Special Education from FGCU. I am also a US Navy veteran having served aboard the USS Nimitz. I love farming, animals and have goats, chickens, ducks and a whole array of critters. I'm grateful for the opportunity to teach my fantastic PGMS students and help them grow educationally, emotionally and socially!
