What a great place to learn! My passion is helping students and teachers reach success. I have been with New Caney ISD for over 20 years. My background includes working with special programs with an emphasis in curriculum and instruction. My favorite thing about New Caney ISD is the multitude of educational opportunities available to our students. We strive daily to ensure our campus culture conveys to students that learning is a life long journey!

Mrs. Graciela Canales

My name is Graciela Canales, and I am honored to be a part of the Porter Elementary family! My first classroom was right here at Porter Elementary School as a third-grade teacher, and I couldn't stay away! I earned my B.S from the University of Houston and an M.Ed from the University of Texas RGV in Bilingual Education with a specialization in Dual Language. In the past eleven years, I've been privileged to serve the New Caney ISD community as a teacher, EL Coach, EL Specialist, and now as Assistant Principal. I am the proud wife to a wonderful husband, a momma to a beautiful little boy, and two fur babies. I am thrilled to work with our teachers, students, and parents to provide the best educational opportunities to our community!
