Mrs. Catherine Ponton

Hi! I am Mrs. Ponton and I am so excited that your child is in my class this year! I have been teaching here at East Elementary since the 2018-2019 school year. School has always been one of my favorite places to be. I love learning, and I became a teacher to inspire students to love learning, too!

I have lived in Punta Gorda since 2017 with my husband and two dogs. I enjoy spending time with my family, assembling puzzles, and researching fun things to do in the classroom!

  • Communication Information

    You will automatically be added to my class Remind by the first week of school. I will be using Remind to send out important information and updates to all parents/guardians. Remind is also how you can get ahold of me through phone call or text message. This option is preferred. Other options include the email and phone number provided above.
