Hello! My name is Carrie Pontzius and I started my career with JA in 2010. I have had many different responsibilities within the education team and my most current role focuses on developing an enhanced student assessment program, demonstrating how the JA program affects students. I am excited to share the impact JA has on students with our community!
Part of my job: Being in the classroom. I enjoy leading the JA program and interacting with educators and students.
Place in Eastern Iowa: Any of the local dessert shops! We have a few to choose from and they are all good!
