I have been part of the Garfield family for many years now, first as a parent, then as a para educator, and now as a teacher. I love connecting with students and helping them feel valued and successful. This year, in addition to academics, our class is focusing on social skills like building empathy and accepting diversity so that we can make a difference in our world.     ---Rebecca Porter
