My name is Teresa Hockaday. The 2022-2023 school year will be my first year as the school nurse for grades 6-12, but it won't be my first time to walk the halls at Ponder ISD. I attended K-12 at Ponder and graduated in 2001. I went to Texas Woman's University and received a bachelors degree in Nursing and have been a registered nurse since 2005. I have worked in the hospital setting with children for my entire nursing career. My husband and I met while I was on a travel nursing assignment and we now have 3 amazing boys, 2 of them are students in the elementary and our youngest wishes he was old enough to go to Ponder with his big brothers. I am so excited to be back and I'm looking forward to helping your kids as they navigate through whatever health journey they are facing.
