Dawn Porter-Third Grade

I am delighted to continue teaching at Lake Harriet Lower Campus!   I spent my first 3 years  of teaching in Waukegan, IL, after graduating from Luther College with a BA degree in elementary education and Spanish.  For 22 years  I taught at Jefferson Community School in Minneapolis, first as a Spanish specialist and then for 17 years as a third grade teacher. In the fall of 2008 I moved to Lake Harriet.  My husband and I enjoy living in the  Linden Hills neighborhood.  Our daughter graduated from Southwest High School in 2012 and the University of Wisconsin, Stevens Point in 2016.  Our son graduated from Southwest in 2015 and attends Luther College.

River Rendezvous
The First Week

We had fun on Monday!  This week we are building our classroom community, reviewing school routines, creating  and learning 3rd grade expectations, and getting a taste of the third grade curriculum for first quarter:  graphing; a study about the sun, moon and stars; maps; vocabulary building; and writing in response to our reading of both fiction and non-fiction.

Ask your child what Ms. Boyle and Mrs. Porter shared from their ME boxes!
