My name is Dena Porter. I am excited to be the new kindergarten teacher for SACA. I graduated from ASU with my B.S, and Master's degrees in early childhood education. While I have taught all elementary grades through 8th grade, except for pre-k and 5th, my deep love for teaching is kindergarten. I believe God gives teachers a heart for specific ages and He has blessed me with 5-, 6- and 7-year olds. I find tremendous joy in being present when the "light bulb turns on" in these children to an excitement for letters, sounds, beginning reading, and a love for learning.
David and I have been tremendously blessed to teach in several different places, but mostly in Ozona, Texas. We are the proud parents of three children and 10 wonderful grandchildren. "Blessed is the man whose quiver is full of them." Ps 127:5 We have been so richly blessed with many students, who will always be a part of us, through our teaching.
