My name is Carol Porter and I’m very excited to be your child’s teacher this year. Before I came to Ridgegate, I had 10 years classroom experience teaching elementary. Reading was my focus and I loved it. Afterward, I obtained a Master's in School Psychology and I worked in this district as a Licensed Specialist in School Psychology for the past four years. Now I'm coming back to the classroom where where the information that I learned both in the classroom and as a School Psychologist will be used to help you and your child have a successful year.
I'm a native Texan. I come from San Antonio and growing up as a child I always wanted to be a teacher. Once I became a teacher, I got hooked. I really enjoyed seeing the light go on in a child's eyes when they learn something new. I recently married in March 2018 to a wonderful man I’ve waited my life for.
This is going to be a great year full of growth and learning opportunities. My expectations of students is that they always put forth their best effort. Each day will involve new challenges for them academically, and behaviorally which is why your child will need need your help to master each step, so lease call me or email me immediately if you have any questions or concerns. I'm looking forward to working with you!
