Mrs. Pontious

Hello! My name is Mrs. Pontious. I teach 3rd grade at Garfield Elementary and I  am over joyed  to begin my teaching journey in the very best school district in the area.

I am married to a wonderful man whom also teaches in the district. My husband teaches Government, Sociology, and Current Social Issues at Parsons High School. My husband and I both went to Parsons Schools  and our 3 children, Skyller, Chloe, and Aaron have all attended Parsons Schools since preschool. Needless to say, we bleed blue and gold. Go Vikings!

We are very much an active sports centered family.  We attend many local sporting events and it wouldn't be unusual to find me playing basketball, four square, or jumping rope with students at recess. I too need a brain break from all the learning happening in my classroom.

It is a wonderful experience for me to teach in my school district of choice, teach students I love, and get to share those teachable moments with exceptional educators.

Thank you for visiting my webpage. If you want to know more about the learning happening in my third grade classroom, click on the Photo Gallery and Useful Links.
