Welcome to our classroom website! My name is Patrick LaPorta, and this will be my third year here at NE. I graduated from Colorado Mesa University in 2015 with my degree in Teacher Education, after a very successful career playing collegiate soccer at CMU. Growing up, I actually grew up in the Pinery! I attended Mountain View, Northeast, and moved on to Sagewood Middle School and Ponderosa High School before attending CMU. It has been so great to be back at Northeast supporting and growing with the same community that gave me so much growing up!
I currently live in Englewood, and spend most of my time outside of school outdoors. I enjoy hiking, skiing, and taking advantage of everything the state of Colorado has to offer.
This year, we will be doing a lot of growing! During this exciting year, we will aim at improving our academic abilities, while also growing as young members of a community as well! I look forward to being a part of your awesome journey as a third grader, and spending our year having fun with our learning! If you have any questions for me, please feel free to email me firstname.lastname@example.org.
