• 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!!

     Mrs. Porter
