• My name is Jennifer Watts  Mrs. Watts
         I am a 1989 graduate of Slidell High School. Slidell is just down the road and some of my greatest memories in school were made here in the old Ponder basketball gym.  I graduated in 1992 from Texas Woman's University with my Bachelor's Degree and in 1999 with my Master's Degree in Special Education. I am a certified educator in my home state of Texas in the areas of Elementary and Secondary Special Education, Elementary Self-Contained, Educational Diagnostician and Principal. 

       I began my career in education in 1993. My first year at Ponder Elementary was 2001. However, I was the Special Education Diagnostician for this school district for two years prior. Before I came to Ponder I taught in the Sanger ISD. I love being an educator and I love watching children grow and learn.
        I have been happily married to Brad Watts since 1991 and God has blessed us with two precious children. Our daughter K'Leigh is a Texas Woman's University Graduate with a degree in Education and currently is a second grade school teacher. Our son Brance is a sophomore student athlete for Emporia State University studying Business and playing football. I have had wonderful parents and grandparents in my life that have always been very supportive. I have two amazing sisters that I am very close to.
