I am Sheri Bonsal, the new principal at Porter Elementary. While I was not born in the Porter/New Caney area, I do consider this to be my HOME. In 1989, my husband (Doug Bonsal) and I were invited to New Caney ISD to interview for teaching positions. Ironically, he started his teaching career at Porter Elementary as the PE teacher; I, on the other hand, hope to finish my career as a Porter Eagle when I retire in a million years. (I know, I’ll be really old then.) This coming school year will be my 24th year in education; 18 of which have been in New Caney ISD. I am honored to have been able to grow and serve in such a capacity for the district of New Caney and the students, their families, and the staff of Porter Elementary.
Porter Elementary has a wonderful staff of individuals who LOVES CHILDREN and works very hard so that their students can be successful in all that they do. Our mission is to set high expectations to shape successful and responsible life-long learners. I am so excited to get to know the students of Porter Elementary and build relationships with them that will ensure their success.
I encourage you to be involved in your child’s education, get to know their teachers, check their backpacks for notes and school work, get them to school each day and be on time, encourage them when things get hard, and READ, READ, READ with and to them! Education IS a family affair - - - a family at school and a family at home. Let’s all work together to make sure “OUR CHILDREN” have the best foundation for success!
