Ms. Poncela

My name is Elena Poncela and I teach 5th grade bilingual at Peete Elementary School. I have a Master's degree in Chemistry.

The first time I came to the USA was as an exchange student and graduated from DeSoto High School in Missouri. Later on, I came back to the US to teach in a bilingual program in the state of Illinois. 

I love teaching Science, especially lab experiments! I enjoy teaching Science trough coding, this is the reason why I am involved in a European project to teach Science through coding. 

I am very excited about teaching at Peete Elementary School!
