Rosanne Carlson 2015 Rodel Exemplary Teacher

Third-grade Porter teacher Rosanne Carlson was selected as a 2015 Rodel Exemplary Teacher. Mrs. Carlson has taught for 28 years in Mesa Public Schools and will mentor high-potential student teachers. "The most enjoyable aspects of teaching are watching the students grow each year," Carlson says. "You experience the joy they feel when they accomplish a new task, large or small. It is amazing to see their personalities develop. I love getting to know the families, and many former families are now friends."
