Riverside Middle School Teacher of the Year

Riverside Middle School Teacher of the Year
Teacher of the Year Mrs. Tara Porreca

Mrs. Porreca has been a beloved stakeholder at Riverside Middle School for the past four years.  Her enthusiasm and genuine desire to determine the best way to meet each child's unique learning needs in her classroom is one of her many assets.  She consistently displays her enthusiasm to motivate each of her students to learn, and that always makes a visit to her classroom energizing. She productively supports and collaborates with her colleagues, actively researches and employs new instructional methods and she is an integral member of our I&RS teams.   Her practices intrigue and inspire her students and she continually finds solutions to help students succeed in their academics.  Mrs. Porreca is an excellent example of a teacher who builds a sense of community and genuinely cares about her students.
