(LAKEWOOD RANCH, FL) – LRHS welcomed new full-time substitute teacher Christopher Monoki this Fall.

Monoki is also an assistant football and sprint coach.

Because of this, Monoki has adopted the nickname of Coach.

Before LRHS, Monoki was in the Marine Corps.

Football coach Rashad West suggested the assistant position to Monoki.

Monoki said, “Coach West suggested I pick up a position at the school since I’m always here. So, I took his advice.”

Monoki’s favorite part about LRHS is the kids.

“I want them to know that I’m an easy-going and fair teacher and coach, always trying to inspire and lift folks around me,” Monoki continued.
