Mrs. Mandy Pond
Welcome to Second Grade! My name Mandy Pond and I have been teaching for 21 years. I am a graduate of Clemson University (Go Tigers!) and received my Masters degree in Creative Arts/Curriculum Learning from Lesley University. I am married to Brad Pond and we have four (yes, I said FOUR) boys. Andrew is in 9th grade at North Augusta High School, Garrett is in 8th grade at Paul Knox, Miles is here at HHE in fourth grade, and Luke is 5 and in Kindergarten here at HHE. In the past, I taught second grade for nine years--four of those years here at HHE. I then took some time off to be with my children, teaching part time at Grace CDC in 3K and 4K. A position opened up at HHE for Kindergarten in 2011 and I jumped! I taught kindergarten for 2 years, first grade for three years and this is my fourth year back in second grade. Teaching is my passion and I am thrilled I get to share it with you and your family!
You can reach me by email (firstname.lastname@example.org), calling the school (803-442-6170), or texting me on our Remind App. Text @pondpeople to 81010 for class updates via text. Your number remains private.
Let's have a great year!!
