Laura LaPonte

Mrs. LaPonte is new to Johnson High School this year. She is an English Language Arts and Special Education teacher who is excited to teach Resource English I and III/IV and co-teach both English I and English III at CTJ. Mrs. LaPonte holds a Bachelor's Degree in English/Journalism from the University of Delaware, and a Master's Degree in Secondary English Education from the University of Bridgeport. She became a teacher because she loves helping students appreciate literature. Her colleagues are what make working at CTJ even more fun.
