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 Luther College in 2019.

Dear Families,

I am overwhelmed by your generosity and kindness.  Thank you.

It has been a privilege and an honor to work with your children this year.  I'm so proud of them.  They are thoughtful, helpful and creative.  I've been amazed by their unique insights and loved watching them grow as individuals.  Although our time together was cut short, I'll treasure the memories: from their ME boxes to their wax museum costumes, from the Flipgrids of ancient civilization games to their unique puppet shows.

I look forward to seeing each of you in the future to hear about your child's adventures and journeys.  Have a wonderful summer!

With heartfelt thanks,

Dawn Porter
