The award honors educators who demonstrate achievement,
leadership and dedication in their work.
The NCRA notes that Moniz created new ways to aid students in
the learning and retention of material, including the creation
of audio files as well as text versions of non-punctuated
sentences to assist students in learning the proper use of
grammar and punctuation. She also creates course guides
reflecting the manner in which legal transcripts are prepared
and edited, and she develops instructional materials addressing
court procedures and how court reporters interact with others in
the judicial system.
Along with helping her students master the material, Moniz
frequently sends them motivational emails.
A 30-year veteran of the court reporting industry and one of the
most senior court reporting instructors at Tri-C, Moniz is
herself a graduate of Tri-C’s program.
“My love of this profession began the day I became a court
reporting student,” Moniz said in NCRA’s award announcement. “I
would have never thought, in my wildest imagination, that one
day I would be on the other side of that seat helping students
fulfill their dream of becoming a court reporter. My greatest
reward is their success. I am honored and proud to join the past
recipients [of this award].”
