Hello Kindergarten Families!
I am so excited to start the 2021-2022 school year! This will be my 6th year at San Tan Elementary and my 5th 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 15th 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 ASU.
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 4 year old Ross, and our dog Salsa. I really enjoy watching TV, writing, reading, embroidery, coloring, collecting crystals, and swimming.
Kindergarten is the best! In my 15 years of teaching, 14 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! To help with that, I use the Bloomz app to communicate with parents! This will be my 4th year using it and I love it so much!! Think Facebook, but 100% private just for our classroom!! This is where you will find newsletters, special announcements, notes from me, and all sorts of important information!! 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 Bright Leader this year and helping them to grow as leaders and learners! Thank you for sharing your kiddo with me!
Get Ready for a Colorful Year!!
