Mrs. Ortiz

Hello humans!

I am so excited to be your third grade teacher.  This is the year I call the first "big kid" year as students make the transition from being lower elementary students to upper elementary leaders!

I truly believe that teaching is my life's work.  I love teaching and learning every single day!

I was born and raised in of the few people that is a born and bred Floridian.

I graduated from the University of Central Florida (Go Knights!) with a degree in Early Childhood education and have both my ESOL and Reading Endorsements.

I have two teenage children that both go to Forest High School.  My son is a senior this year and my daughter is a sophomore.  They are both avid distance runners so I often spend my weekends at their meets!

I love to read, go to Disney (I'm slightly obsessed), travel around the world, and spend time with my family and friends. I also LOVE chai tea lattes and giraffes.

I am here to support you in any way that I, please do not hesitate to reach out! I can be reached by email, phone, or Class Dojo.
