Welcome to 4th Grade!


Hello!  I'm Mrs. Pongratz, a 4th grade homeroom teacher here at JES!  This is my fifth year teaching at Jordan Elementary School.  I had a fabulous first four years here, and I am looking forward to another great year! I feel so lucky to be working in this fantastic community, school, and classroom! 

Here's a little about myself:
I have been a fourth grade teacher for many years! Before coming to Jordan, I taught in Waseca, MN for eight years. I even taught fourth grade in Houston, TX before that! I truly enjoy the personalities of fourth grade kids!

I live in New Prague, MN with my husband and daughter. I grew up in Glencoe, MN and I earned my Bachelor's Degree in Elementary Education with a Spanish minor at Minnesota State University, Mankato. In 2007 I graduated with my Master’s Degree in Teaching and Learning from Saint Mary’s University. Some of my favorite activities are cooking, digital scrap-booking, spending time with my family, and vacationing up north.
