Mrs. Ashley Porras
Welcome to 2nd Grade!
I’m thrilled to be your child’s 2nd Grade teacher! This is my 11th year teaching with 10 of those years being in 2nd Grade. Second Grade is where my heart is!
I attended Illinois State University, Normal, where I graduated with a bachelor’s degree in elementary education along with middle school endorsements in reading, language arts, science and social science. I have continued my education with the completion of several graduate courses covering the topics of differentiated instruction, servicing special needs, responsive classroom management, character education, and anti-bullying strategies. I am honored to be a current 2022 Illinois Teacher of the Year nominee.
I couldn't be happier to be a part of the Grande Park community, and I'm looking forward to another wonderful year in 2nd Grade!
