Mrs. LaPorte

Greetings!  My name is Michele LaPorte and I am truly thrilled to be here at Hampton working with you and your child(ren) this year.  Although I am new to Hampton, I have worked for Rochester Schools for the last 18 years as the ESL teacher/consultant at University Hills Elementary.    I live in Washington Township with my husband, two children, and dog Lola.  Outside of school, I am often found at the gymnastics center for my daughter Emma who is 10 years old or traveling to a hockey rink for my son Joey who is 8 years old.    I am looking forward to a wonderful year working with and supporting your child(ren) with his/her English needs.

My parents moved to the United States from Poland before I was born. When I went to kindergarten, I did not speak English, only Polish. I now speak, English, Polish and Spanish. I have been a teacher for almost 20 years. While this is my second year in Rochester, I was a teacher in the Pontiac School District for 17 years. I taught 1st grade, kindergarten and preschool. I live in Lake Orion with my two sons, James and Jack. Jame is a fifth grader and Jack is a 4th grader. We have a cat named Kaylah and a dog names Boss. In my spare time I like to read and spend time with my boys.
