Mrs. Donna Porrey
I am very excited to be part of the staff at Grande Park Elementary. I have taught special education for 16 years. I graduated from Western Illinois University, Macomb, with a degree in special education in 1998. I went on to complete my master’s degree in educational administration through Governor's State University, Chicago, in 2009. My career began in University Park as a teacher for the Crete-Monee School District as a first and second grade special education teacher. In 2002 I became a diagnostic teacher for the Kendall County Special Education Cooperative. East View, Long Beach Elementary, Wolf's Crossing, and Grande Park have been my home since then. This year I have had the privilege of joining School District 308 as a learning behavior specialist.
I have always looked at teaching as my calling. It is my pleasure and privilege to be inspired by our students every day. Amazing teachers in classrooms when I was "on the other side of the desk," inspired me to become a teacher. I will be forever grateful to each of them.
