Mrs. Stephanie Portillo
This is Mrs. Portillo's first year teaching at Park View High School and her twentieth year of teaching Spanish. She has taught in both private and public schools in Virginia. She has an Associates Degree from Richard Bland College and a Bachelors Degree in International Studies & Spanish from Virginia State University. She also studied and lived abroad in Mexico City for seven years where she earned a Diploma of Foreign Studies specializing in Spanish and Mexican Art, History & Literature.
Mrs. Portillo lives in Stephens City, Va with her husband and sons ages twelve and fifteen. Her husband is from El Salvador so Spanish is the language of choice in their home and practicing/following the customs of the Spanish speaking world is a natural part of her daily life both at home and school.
Mrs. Portillo is very much looking forward to getting to know the Park View community and sharing the amazing Spanish language and the incredibly interesting cultures of the Spanish speaking countries with her students. Park View's diversity is one of the main attractions for her as she is excited to learn from our students as they share their cultures with her as well!
As Mrs. Portillo settles in, she hopes to help out with the Spanish National Honor Society, Spanish Club as well as other extracrurricular and service initiatives on campus.
