Degrees and Certifications:
Ms. Sierra Pontius
My name is Sierra Pontius and I am one of the Early Intervention Preschool teachers here at Discovery Elementary! This is my second year teaching in the West Ada School District and my first year teaching here at Discovery Elementary. I am a graduate of the great University of Idaho (GO VANDALS) and I will always show off my silver, black, and gold around this blue and orange town! I graduated with a degree in Early Childhood Development and Education with an emphasis in Special Education. I have always loved teaching but was never sure what grade I would eventually want to teach. However, it did not take me long to find my place in the world of education. I absolutely adore children at the preschool age and love being able to give children the best possible head start. Even more so, I love the challenge that comes with teaching Special Education and I am continuously inspired by the children I work with every day. When I am not at school I am busy taking trips with my family, stuffing my face with popcorn at the movies, or relaxing on my couch binge watching The Office for the hundredth time.
I cannot wait to get to know you and your child! If you ever have any questions or would like to get in touch, feel free to contact me!
