Degrees and Certifications:

Mrs. Kate LaPorte, Third Grade

Hi! My name is Kate LaPorte and I was born in Tampa, FL. My father retired from the Coast Guard, so I have a lot of experience living in other areas of the United States but have lived in NC since1987. Over the last 15 years I've taught first, second, and third grades for a parochial school in Raleigh. I've been married to my husband, Jim, for 11 years. We have a 3-year old son named James Thomas, a beagle named Charlie, three chihuahuas named Bubba, Linus, and Lucy, and a cat named Kitten. When I am not teaching, I love going on spontaneous adventures with my family.
