Mrs. Denise LaPorta


I am very excited to be teaching at White Oak Elementary this year. I have been a teacher for over 20 years.  I taught 3rd, 4th and 5th grades for 18 years, and then I worked part time for the last 4 years in various positions such as an enrichment specialist and a 3rd grade Explorers teacher.

I am married with one child who is 4 years old. Although I have now lived in North Carolina longer than my hometown, my roots are from Rochester, New York, where I grew up with 2 brothers and 2 sisters. I love teaching and forming relationships with students, teachers and families, so I look forward to working with  the WOE family.
