• This is year 20 at Ponder ISD! I can't believe it!  Time sure flies when you're having fun!  My teaching philosophy fits with the following quotation: " In general, we retain 10 percent of what we read, 20 percent of what we hear, and 95 percent of what we teach someone else to do." So following that philosophy, I try to do as much hands-on learning as possible.
    Some of my favorite quotes:
    "Be yourself, that's all there is of you."-Ralph Waldo Emerson

     "People become really quite remarkable when they start thinking that they can do things. When they believe in themselves they have the first secret of success." Norman Vincent Peale
