Hi my name is Diana Portugal and I am honored to be teaching second grade at Sugar Hill School, the home of the Dragons! I began my role as an educator 26 years ago as an Instructional aide at Chaparral Hills and Sugar Hill. I have taught at Hidden Springs, Sunnymead Elementary, but Sugar Hill is my home! I have taught Kindergarten, first, second, third, and fourth grades and have enjoyed teaching each grade level. My expectations for my students are to instill the importance of education and prepare them for their future paths. I aspire my students to be active participants in their education. We strive to do our best and place value in collaborative work. Our class is a family that supports one another through respect, responsibility, and friendship. I look forward to each day’s challenges and successes and watching each student develop into productive citizens.
