Hello Kindergarten Families!
I am so excited to start the 2018-2019 school year! This will be my 4rd year at San Tan Elementary and my 3nd year in the Dual Language Program! San Tan is a great place to learn and grow and I am so happy to be a part of the Kindergarten Team here.
Here is a little information about me, Mrs. Porter!
My name is Meghan Porter, and this will be my 13th year in the teaching profession. I earned my BS degree in Elementary Education in 2007 from Arizona State University. In 2013, I graduated with a Masters Degree in Elementary Education with an emphasis on Reading also from Arizona State University.
I have lived in Arizona since 2001 and I couldn’t see myself living anywhere else. When I am not teaching, I love to spend time with my husband Tom, our 2 year old Ross (who just started school himself in May), and our dog Salsa. I really enjoy watching TV, writing, reading, and swimming.
Kindergarten is the best! In my 13 years of teaching, 12 of them have been in kindergarten and I never want to do anything else! My goal this year is for every child to learn to love school, feel safe and be a positive leader. When this happens their love for learning evolves and continues throughout their lifetime.
Good communication is the key to academic success! In our program Miss Renteria and I use the Bloomz app to communicate with parents! It is amazing and we love it so much! Think Facebook, but 100% private just for our classroom!! I can send notes to you on behavior, important information, classroom sign-ups, and pictures/videos ofthe kiddos school day! Please be on the lookout at Meet the Teacher for login information!
I love working with parents as a team because we both want your kiddo to succeed. Some of the many ways I will be in contact with you are through your child’s daily Take Home Folder, weekly newsletters sent through the Bloomz app and email, e-mails, progress reports, parent conferences and report cards. I will be sending additional information when the year begins!
I look forward to working with your Super Leader this year and helping them to grow as Leaders! Thank you for sharing your kiddo with me!
Lets have a super year!!
