My name is Mrs. Pontillo. I am married and have three children of my own. I also have three dogs,and two cats. I am very excited for another year here at Smith Farm. This will be such an exciting year in Readiness! I have a teaching license in elementary education grades kindergarten through sixth grade, a special education license for grades kindergarten through twelfth grade in cross categorical curriculum and adaptive curriculum. I earned my Masters degree in teaching education from Salem College.
Our classroom is a very busy place for learning. Our environment is structured with hands-on learning activities, small group work, collaborative group work, and activities that use technology. Everyone is expected to try their hardest each day, and make everyone feel like they belong.
Communication is very important. I am always available to help or answer any questions you may have. You may send a note with your child, call Smith Farm Elementary or email me.
