Donna Monks - School Social Worker

I am entering my fourth year as a School Social Worker with Ponoka Elementary School, and this will be my eighteenth year with WCPS. I feel honoured and blessed to be able to work with the students, parents and staff of PES. Working with children is my passion and they continue to surprise me with their resiliency and desire to please and grow.

I live in Ponoka, but I grew up in Newfoundland and I still enjoy going home every summer to spend time with my parents. The most important thing to me is spending time with my two sons and their families. I have two grandchildren, and two more on the way; they are the joy of my life.

I look forward to this new year of learning, growing and making new memories.

I’ve learned that people will forget what you said, people will forget what you did, but people will never forget how you made them feel. Maya Angelou
