My name is Donna Ponta and I am the Administrative Assistant at SMS. Starting in 1999 I worked as a Yard Duty Aide. After a year I was asked to be the Teacher’s Aide in the third grade class. I worked there for 16 years. My favorite contribution in the third grade is teaching the children cursive handwriting. I am now starting my third year as an Administrative Assistant which has been very rewarding for me plus I still get to teach cursive! I have two daughters and a husband who are all graduates of SMS. I am an avid reader and walker, but not at the same time! I grew up in a small town and I love the great outdoors. I feel very blessed to be a part of the St. Mel School community.
