Welcome!

Dear Students  and  Parents,

I  hope  everyone  had  a  fun  and  relaxing  summer!  I  am  excited  to  hear  about everyone’s  adventures  this  summer!  My  name  is  Mrs. Hill  and  I  am  thrilled  to  be  returning  to  Porter  Traditional  School  as  the  Life  Learners  1  Teacher  for  the  2021-2022  school  year.

This  is  my  eight  year teaching  and  being  a  part  of  the  Porter Family. I  absolutely  love  it  here,  as  I  am  sure  you  will  as  well.  I have been the self contained elementary teacher here at Porter but have prior experience with Learning Disabilities.  In all  of  these  experiences,  I  have  learned that  communication  between  families  and  educators  is  key  to  student  success. Aside  from  teaching,  I  enjoy  spending  time  with  my  dogs  Harley and Thanos,  running,  kayaking, Mexican food, and  spending  time  with  family  and  friends.  In the  fall,  I  enjoy  watching  football  and cheering  on Penn  State and  the  Pittsburgh Steelers.

 I hope to be a guide and mentor to your child this year as they embark on a learning journey filled with excitement, many challenges, and learning opportunities. I believe that all students can succeed, and it is my priority to ensure that all students reach their highest potential. I can’t wait to start this school year and get to know you and your child. 

Please  take  time  to  visit  the  Porter website www.porter.pwcs.edu is  full  of information  such  as  upcoming  events;  supply  lists,  our  uniform  policy,  and  the  summer  reading  lists.  Also  please  feel  free  to  contact  me  at ; it crossea@pwcs.edu with any  questions  or  concerns. I  look  forward  to  meeting  our  new  Life  Learners  and  seeing  the  returning  Life Learners  at  Teacher  Meet  and  Greet  and  Back  to  School  Night!  Enjoy  the  rest  of your  summer!

Love,

Mrs. Hill
