Hello! My man is Mr. Porrata (Mr. P. for short) and I am the young men’s 3rd and 4th grade ELA teacher this year. This is my first year teaching at Marion P. Thomas Charter School and I am very excited to help all scholars excel both in and out of the classroom.
I went to Rider University (Go Broncs!) for my Bachelors in communications and Grand Canyon University (Go Lopes!) for my Masters in Special Education. My college courses really helped shape who I am as an educator today and helped prepare me for my career as a teacher.
I was born and raised in Camden, New Jersey and actually worked there for 8 years as an assistant teacher. I loved teaching and working with students in Camden and I am very excited to start building new relationships with the students, parents, and community of Newark!
