Mrs. Caitlin Portuese
Welcome to my first grade class!
My name is Mrs. Caitlin Portuese and I am so happy to be your child's first grade teacher! I grew up in West Orange and attended Gregory School as a student and I am so lucky to be back as a teacher. This is my seventh year teaching at Gregory. I spent two years teaching Kindergarten and this is my fifth year teaching first grade. In my classroom my goal is for the students to learn, explore, and have fun. Please note that more information pertinent to our class can be found on our google class website. Access to the website is located on the navigation bar on the left hand side of this page. Here you can find daily announcements, our weekly newsletter, homework updates, and important class documents.
I can be reached via email at email@example.com. Email is the best way to contact me, however, you can also leave a message for me at (973) 669 5397 and I will get back to you at my earliest convenience.
