Hello! My name is Terri Cochrum. For the 2020-2021 school year, I will be teaching a section of Geometry and a section of Math Models as well as all levels of high school Special Education Mathematics. I was an assistant softball coach here at Ponder from 2013-2016 and the high school TMSCA sponsor for the 2016-2017 school year. I am proud to say that I am a Ponder graduate and attended Ponder schools K-12th. I earned my Bachelor's Degree (BGS Sociology/Government: Summa Cum Laude) from Texas Woman's University in Denton, Texas. Before becoming a classroom teacher at Ponder, I was a paraprofessional in Content Mastery often working with struggling math students. My experiences in Content Mastery inspired me to pursue a career in Mathematics. When I am not in the classroom, I enjoy Texas Rangers baseball, Dallas Mavericks basketball, coaching youth sports, fishing and spending time with my husband, Brandon, and our daughter, Vada.
