Mrs. Denise Porter


My name is Mrs. Porter.  I have been at Ashland for several years working with students to enhance their reading skills.  I enjoy helping children, as well as parents, learn and apply the tools to become proficient readers. I presently work with the third grade as a Reading Hub instructor.  In my spare  time  I enjoy reading, bicycling, listening to music such as Sting, Stevie Wonder, Jill Scott, Jacob Collier,  and watching Serena Williams play tennis.  I absolutely love my three children and one granddaughter.

Hello Parents

Hello parents and students.

  Assignments for February will be on my Team's page for your students.  They should also read their assigned books sent home 3 times and read for 20 minutes.  They should read all the passages for each sight word assigned.  Using their journal notebook, they will write two sentences for each sight word assigned.  They will be given credit once they return to school with completed assignments.
