My name is Ms. Ponsell. I will be teaching three classes of 7th grade English/Language Arts and one class of 7th grade Social Studies this year. This is my 14th year teaching in public school. I am new to the Jaguars this year. I worked at another local school where I taught 6th and 7th grade ELA and Science. I have a ED.S (Specialist Degree) in Curriculum Instruction, as well as my Masters in Education and Bachelors of Arts in Educational Psychology. I am also a Veteran of the United States Army where I spent 4 years in active duty and 2 years in the reserves. I enjoy outdoor activities in all seasons, animals, reading, and spending time with family and friends. I am looking forward to a wonderful year working with you at BMS!
