Welcome Lion Students & Families!
My name is Tara Furr and this will be my first year here at Ponder. I am beyond thrilled and grateful for the opportunity to get to serve the students, parents, and staff at Ponder Junior High. I graduated from Stephen F. Austin State University with a degree in Interdisciplinary Studies and graduated this December from Angelo State University with a Masters in Professional School Counseling. The 2022-2023 school year will be my twelfth year in education. I previously taught 6th grade ELA in Lewsiville ISD and most recently Northwest ISD.
My husband and I live in Roanoke with our three boys, Lane (14), Levi (11), and Luke (6).
My goal as counselor of PJH is to support the development and growth of students in the areas of academic, social-emotional, and career readiness. Additionally, to be a resource for our staff and families.
Please do not hesitate to reach out if you need anything. I am looking forward to an amazing school year!
