• My name is Miss Portell and this is my first year working in District 34. I am a second grade teacher at Hillcrest Elementary School. I recieved my Bachelor's Degree from Northern Illinois University.  

     

     

    I am super excited to have your child in my second grade class this school year! 

    In my classroom, your child is encouraged to develop a growth mindset as we continue our learning throughout the school year.
