Our Class at a Glance (Mrs. Portiera)
Welcome to Second Grade Room 202!!
Hello, my name is Dorothy Portiera and this is my 3rd year teaching second grade teacher at St. John’s!! I am so happy to be here, as it has been my family’s parish since we moved to Streamwood in 2006.
I have been teaching in the Archdiocese of Chicago for 14 years. I taught Kindergarten for 5 years in Elk Grove and First Grade for 7 years in Elmwood Park. I have always loved working with children and teaching is my passion. I love seeing the children progress and blossom throughout the year as an elementary educator.
Three main goals we strive for in our classroom: for the children to become independent learners and thinkers, to always take pride in our work, and to be good listeners.
I feel that communication between parent/student/teacher is the key to any classrooms success! Every Friday I will post a newsletter on what we have been learning throughout the week. Along with our Friday newsletter I will also post the spelling words for the week. If you every have a question or concern please feel free to contact me at firstname.lastname@example.org
I look forward to teaching your children this year!!
