School is approaching rather quickly so I'm ecstatic!!!  I am SUPER thrilled to be teaching 5th Grade at Porter.  I have always enjoyed being around kid's, which lead me to pursue my dream of teaching. My goal is to create a safe, fun, and challenging environment for all student's to learn. I hope to accomplish this goal with parent's and student's as my teammates. LET'S HAVE AN AWESOME SCHOOL YEAR!!!!!!!!!
