Ms. Mercedes Portillo

!Hola! My name is Mercedes Portillo. “To have another language is to possess a second soul” by Charlemagne. One of the many benefits of being bilingual is being able to see the world in different ways or with a second soul as Charlemagne states. I want to share this appreciation for bilingualism and biculturalism with my students. I believe all students need to be prepared for college, careers, and communities that are highly diverse and globally connected.

I received my bachelor’s degree in Liberal Studies, my teaching credential and my BCLAD at University State of California, Fullerton. I have taught in Corona Norco USD and Pasadena USD. This will be my sixth year here at Mountain View Elementary. I taught 4/5 grades in 2013-2014 and this is my fifth year as a first grade DLI teacher. I am happy to be back for another school year! J
