Coach Pond Biography

Micaela Mejia Pond a.k.a Coach Pond

“Exercise your mind!”

I went to the University of Wisconsin-Madison to study Elementary Education.  I got my Masters in Curriculum and Instruction from George Mason University.
I was the student and family friend of Christa McAuliffe, the teacher who died aboard the space shuttle Challenger.  She inspired me to become a teacher and reach for the stars!
