Welcome, New Pendleton School District Teachers
Serena Bontemps, 5th Grade Teacher at Washington Elementary
Serena was born and raised in Pendleton and is a PHS Class of 2018 graduate. She earned her bachelor’s degree from EOU in June 2021, including an endorsement in English for Speakers of Other Languages (ESOL).
