Welcome to Life Learners 2!

Welcome Back! I hope everyone had a fun and relaxing summer! I am excited to see everyone and hear all about your summer adventures. My name is Ms. Vlassich and I am thrilled to be returning to Porter Traditional School as the Life Learners 2 Teacher for the 2021-2022 school year.

This is my second-year teaching at Porter. Porter is a wonderful school, and I am sure you will agree. Before teaching at Porter, I had previous experience working with 5-6th grade, in an Autism classroom. I also had experience working with students’ grades K-3 and 7-9 with Intellectual Disabilities, Behavioral Disorders and Autism Spectrum Disorders. In all of my teaching experiences, I have learned that communication between families and educators is key to student success. Aside from teaching, I enjoy spending time with my three crazy dogs, reading, exercising, kayaking, and spending time with family and friends. In the fall, I enjoy watching football and cheering on the Pittsburgh Steelers.
