Hello! I am so excited for the 2021-22 school year to begin! My name is Ms. Festa, and this is my 5th year here at Porter Traditional School. I look forward to making connections with students and families this school year! I am originally from Connecticut, and am currently finishing my masters degree in school counseling! I enjoy sunshine, being active, and being around my friends. A constant goal of mine is to incorporate social emotional learning into my classroom, and look forward to learning and growing together this year.
