Saint Brigid School A Tradition of Excellence

My name is Jesus Poncela and this is my fifteenth year teaching Spanish at Saint Brigid School. I graduated in Valladolid (Spain) University earning a Bachelor of Arts in Education with a major in Linguistics. Over the 26 years of my teaching career I have had the opportunity to teach in three different countries, Spain, Nicaragua and the United States.

For me teaching is not just a way of earning a living but a passion. I consider myself fortunate because life has given me the opportunity to do what I love, and have found that I love what I do. Teaching allows me to share my experiences and knowledge with children in the hopes that it will help them, not only grow to be educated professionals, but people of integrity.
