    Happy Day Ponder Lions!

    My name is Mrs. Brandi Nowicki and I am thrilled to be a part of the Ponder Community teaching 5th grade English Language Arts for Ponder Elementary.  My previous teaching was with Denton ISD at Hawk Elementary where I taught 3rd grade Math and Science.  I am excited this year to prepare and help transition 5th grade elementary students to their next year in junior high.  We are going to have an amazing year learning from books and different avenues of literature using technology and other resources.  We will grow as writers using structures and types of figurative language.  

    I live in Ponder with my family; my husband Ryan and our three sons, Landon (8th), Caden (6th) and Ashton (3rd).  We are an active family that loves the outdoors from the chilly tempartaures in the mountains and caverns to the sunny warmth on water and beaches.  My sons stay busy like most boys playing in sports and of course a love for technology.  I enjoy physical activity through running and outdoor fitness.  

    I graduated from Texas Woman's University with a Bachelor's in Interdisciplinary Studies.  I completed high school in Denton, graduating a Denton Bronco from Billy Ryan HS Campus.

    I look forward to getting to know your child and working with you to help this year be successful.  I will meet your child where they are and I will help them identify their strengths as well as areas they want to continue to grow and develop.  I am here for your child and family, please communciate with me and together this year will be a success.
