Mrs. Teri Ponticello

Hello and welcome! My name is Teri Ponticello, your Native American Program Coordinator and East Coast transplant where I was a Montessori teacher for 11 years.

I was introduced to Native American culture as a little girl by my Aunt Ida who is Choctaw. Feeling drawn to move to Arizona and work with Native students and families, my husband and I vacationed here in 2005 and never went back! My 2 adult children, son-in-law, 3 dogs, and 3 grand-dogs keep us busy.

I am blessed to serve in this capacity. We believe that parent and community involvement are essential for a student’s educational development. Working together, we can provide the best opportunities for our Native American children. We invite you to be part of our program!
