My name is Yahaira Ponce and I’m excited to be your Kinder Teacher of the Deaf/HH! I know it’s going to be a full year of fun, learning and lots of adventures and I can’t wait to see what the year has in store for us! This will be my second-year teaching and I’m glad to be at Settlers Way. Go explorers!
I grew up in Laredo, Tx, a small border town in South Texas. I attended Texas A&M International University and obtained a BA in Communication Disorders. I then moved to San Antonio to attend UT Health Science Center, where I received my Master’s degree in Deaf Education and Hearing Science. I love teaching and servicing students in the RDSPD program because we really set the foundation and provide students a LOVE of learning taking into consideration each students uniqueness.
When I’m not in the classroom with the kiddos, I enjoy traveling, playing tennis, watching movies and spending quality time with my family and friends. I cannot wait to work together and see your student’s growth!
