3rd Grade Team

Hello, Wildcats!  

Welcome to 3rd Grade!

My name is Deanna Porricelli and I am thrilled to be teaching 3rd grade again this year!  I grew up in a small town in the mountains of Virginia, but moved to Lakeland to attend Southeastern University.  I graduated from SEU and received my Bachelors degree in 2001.  I am currently certified to teach Elementary grades K-6 and have both ESOL and Reading Endorsements.  I have worked in the school system for over 14 years, as a substitute teacher, full time classroom teacher and as an LEA/ESE facilitator.  Teaching is my passion and I truly love this calling!  I am looking forward to another incredible school year!   I can't wait to meet you!  Third Grade Rocks!

*Our classroom can sometimes get pretty cold, so your child may choose to bring a small blanket to keep in our room.  You may want to send them with a jacket/hoodie (MAC or solid navy) each day as well.

*Please make sure you have labeled your child's name on all of their personal items including backpacks, jackets, blankets, water bottles and lunch boxes.

*Don't forget to read at least 20 minutes every day!
