Mrs. Pond's Third Grade

The goal of education is not to increase the amount of knowledge but to create the possibilities for a child to invent and discover, to create men and women who are capable of doing new things. ~Jean Piaget

About Me

I am one of the "originals" of River Ridge as I have been here since its opening in 2005. I have 15 years of teaching experience in grades 1, 2, and 3. My husband and I live in Evans and are avid Georgia Bulldogs fans and love the outdoors. We are partially empty nesters. Our son is a junior at Georgia Southern University with a focus on sports & finance, and our daughter is a sophomore at Georgia Military College with a focus on dental hygiene. Both are River Ridge alumni. My passion is children and I look forward to what this school year has to bring.
