Denise Porter

I want to welcome you and your child to Hutto High School.  My name is Denise Porter.  I am one of the Functional Academic teachers at HHS. This is my first year at Hutto ISD.   I’m so excited to meet and learn from your child.  If you are receiving my bio; I am your child’s case manager.  We will work together on any paperwork, schedules, etc throughout the year.

I am starting my 15th year as a Special Education teacher.  I am coming from Midland ISD, where I taught both High School and Middle School Functional and Academic Life Skills. I graduated from Schreiner University with a degree in English, and am certified in English Language Arts, Special Education, English as a Second Language and Theatre Arts.

My life’s work is to advocate for and instruct children with special needs, helping them to become independent as possible. I also challenge myself each year to learn more about communication and technology involving individuals with multiple disabilities. I am a strong, knowledgeable advocate for our students.

This year will certainly be a challenge for all of us, together we will learn and succeed.
