Monica Stonier is an Instructional Literacy Coach at Pacific Middle School in Vancouver. She's also a Washington State Representative. Cindy Sandor, a coworker, nominated Monica, and this is what she had to say about her:
It is my pleasure to nominate Monica Stonier who has been a teacher for over ten years and is now an instructional coach at Pacific Middle School in Vancouver. She helps teachers (her peers) work smarter so even more of our students can reach their achievement potential. Monica has the desire to make a difference in all of our lives, having high, but realistic expectations for all of us. She also coaches our girls Cross Country team and our Track team. She has formed strong lasting relationships with her girls on the team and cares about each and every one of them. They often come back to visit her even after they have continued on to high school and beyond. Her biggest attributes are her enthusiasm and her humor. Our offices are next to each other and we laugh the day away. (Ask her about teaching me to use a cell phone-a HOOT!) She fills the room with her energy, ideas, and her ability to excite her peers and her students, from traveling across the country to meet the President, running for office herself, or attending a soccer game with her children.
Congratulations Monica Stonier from all of us at K103!
