#iamksd: Meet Washington Elementary's Ellen Portlock

Paraeducators play a big role in helping our students succeed in the classroom. For nine years, Ellen Portlock has worked with students so that they get the most out of their education.

What do you like best about working at Kennewick School District?

We have an awesome staff at Washington Elementary. There’s just huge support when it comes to whatever we need, whatever our kids need. Everybody backs everybody up.

What’s your favorite part of your job?

My favorite part of my job is helping students become better in reading and math. There's nothing better then that look on a student's face when they get what you're trying to teach them.

What do you like to do outside work?

Outside of work I love to relax by going camping and fishing with my husband.
