Mr. Faye

Hello! I am so excited for the 2020-21 school year to begin! My name is Ms. Festa, and this is my 4th year here at Porter Traditional School. Even though this year will look different, I look forward to making connections with students and families. I am originally from Connecticut, and am currently finishing my masters degree in school counseling! I enjoy sunshine, working out, and being around my friends. A constant goal of mine is to incorporate social emotional learning into my classroom, and look forward to learning 
and growing together this year. Canvas will be our platform for learning during this virtual time together.
