Mrs. Mandy Pond

Welcome to Second Grade!  My name Mandy Pond and I have been teaching for 22 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 10th grade at North Augusta High School, Garrett is in 9th grade at NAHS, Miles is here at HHE in 5th grade, and Luke is in 1st grade 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 3 years and this is my 5th 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 (, calling the school (803-442-6170), or texting me on our ClassTag app.

Let's have a great year!!
