Hello students, parents, and Bowman family!
My name is Ericka Pomponio and I am very privileged to be one of the Art educators at Bowman Middle! I grew up in north Texas in both Birdville ISD and Southlake Carroll ISD. I graduated from Carroll Senior High school in 2004. I attended college at the University of North Texas, where I earned a B.A. in Interdisciplinary Art and Design Studies from the College of Fine Arts in 2010. I realized shortly after graduation that I had a passion for teaching and missed working creatively with fellow artists, which lead me to seek alternative certification to teach. After completing my alternative certification from ACT Dallas, I was very happily hired to teach at Mendenhall Elementary in the Fall of 2012. I spent ten years as an Art instructor on the elementary campus where I was a part of the leadership team at the distitric level for Visual Arts, serving as the elementary cluster leader. In 2022, I made the shift to secondary Art education and became a Raider! I am currently serving as the Middle school Visual Art leader at the district level.
The Bowman students and staff are the very best to work with; I am very honored and blessed to be a Raider! My goal as a teacher is that all my students feel accepted, encouraged and are empowered to create Art that is uniquely their own. The PISD Art program is truly one of the very best in the state and it is a priviledge to get to work with my fellow educators. When I am not teaching, I enjoy many hobbies including painting, baking, gardening and DIY, just to name a few. I am married to my husband, John, and we have a son, Ashton, and a daughter, Emma!
