Porta, Christina
1st Grade Teacher
Christy Porta was raised in Gonzales, Louisiana. She is the oldest child of 5 girls and enjoys spending time with her big family. She joined the Army in 1996 at the age of 17 and served for 4 years, as part of a signal battalion that established network communications between commanders and their troops. She was primarily stationed at Fort Lewis in Washington State. She enjoyed her time in the Army and spent
time volunteering at a local elementary school, reading to children.

After leaving the Army, she attended Southeastern Louisiana University, where she earned a degree in Elementary Education. Mrs. Porta taught first grade at Prarieville Primary for a short time in 2009 and moved to Lakeside Primary to teach first grade from the Fall of 2009 to the Spring of 2015. She absolutely loves teaching first grade and enjoys watching the tremendous progress that students make during the year.

Mrs. Porta and her husband, Tobey, have been married for 15 years. They have 2 daughters, Bella and Luci. Bella is 9. She attended Cypress Heights last year and is entering the 4th grade. Luci is 3 and currently stays at home with her terrific grandmothers. One of Mrs. Porta’s greatest joys is to spend time with her husband and daughters.

Mrs. Porta attends St. Mark Catholic Church. She became part of the Catholic faith in 2002, through the RCIA process. She is eager to be able to share her Catholic faith and her love of learning with her new students at Cypress Heights.
