Bio: Monte Fisher
Name: Monte Fisher
Credentials: BA in Liberal Studies, Master's in Administration and Leadership.
I was born in Central California, where my grandparents farmed the fertile soil in a small community just outside Fresno. I was still very young when my parents moved to the Napa Valley in California where my mother and father both worked in the medical field.
I attended Pacific Union College (PUC) Elementary, PUC Preparatory School, and then PUC to receive my BA in Liberal Studies. While in college, I worked on the fishing boats of Alaska for Alpha Corporation, soon advancing to pilot my own vessel with the added responsibility of managing a crew. Once graduated from college, I spent one year teaching science and math at San Diego Academy, but then accepted an invitation to return to PUC Elementary and teach sixth grade. For nearly one and a half decades I taught fifth and sixth grades at PUC Elementary, mentoring student teachers and honing my craft.
Before accepting the invitation to serve as principal at PCA, I served as the principal, while teaching at Ozark Adventist School in Gentry, AR, for six years, where I completed my Master’s in Administration and Leadership at the University of Arkansas.
In my free time, I enjoy reading, traveling, wakeboarding, backpacking, scuba, skiing, and exercising. My wife Erin, and our two sons, Mason and Caleb, look forward to serving our school family at PCA!
