Degrees and Certifications:
Hi there, I’m Mrs. Portee!
I have been teaching in Pemberton for 8 years. Prior to Pemberton, I gained 12 years of teaching experience in surrounding states of PA and DE. I’m an alumna of Rutgers University, New Brunswick, NJ and hold a Masters in Educational Leadership, from Neumann University, PA.
I went into teaching several years ago after my first career, and having my first child start school, because I wanted to make an impact of young children’s learning. I teach with high expectations of every child and hold them to that throughout the year.
When not in the classroom, I enjoy reading, biking, exercising, traveling, watching Yankees’ baseball and during the summers, swimming while spending long hours on the beach! I live in Burlington County with my husband and have two young-adult children.
I am very excited about our year together! Welcome to First Grade!
