picWelcome!  My name is Kimberly Wenzel and
 I am excited to be serving Porter for the 4th year as the 6th grade Language Arts teacher, having worked as Porter's Gifted Specialist for 13 years.  I have prior classroom experience in both 1st and 3rd grades and am endorsed in both Gifted Education and Administration and Supervision.  I am also a Porter parent to two FORMER Porter Patriots... Patrick (an 11th grader at Forest Park!), and Ryan (a freshman at Forest Park) and one CURRENT Porter Patriot, Katy (5th grade).  I am looking forward to an exciting year together sharing my passion for reading and writing with your child!

WELCOME, Parents, to Middle School!

I am so excited to part of your student's transition not only into Middle School, but back into in-person learning!

Aside from making sure to purchase the supplies on our 6th grade supply list, please have your student try to sign into his/her Office 365 account prior to the first day of school.  It has probably been a long time since s/he has attempted to log in.  If s/he has forgotten the password, please use this link to help reset it prior to the first day of school. 

Please do not hesitate to reach out with any questions or concerns.   You can find my contact information above.

Looking forward to collaborating on what will, undoubtedly, be an unforgettable year!

Warm regards,
Kimberly Wenzel
