Dear Parents and students:
My name is Paul Portugal, you can also feel free to call me Mr. P. I have lived most of my life in the USA and graduated with a BS in Education from Florida International University located in Miami.
I have had the pleasure of coaching 4 sports in the past 35 years which include basketball, softball, soccer, and baseball. I had the honor to be named twice basketball coach of the year for the Miami Youth League and won 7 championships in sports.
I am excited about the opportunity to teach and pass along my knowledge of physical education, better health, sports, and becoming the best contributors to society for our future generation.
I am originally from Panama and my mother is my role model as she is not only an amazing mother but a very accomplished retired educator. I will be available throughout the year to each of you and look forward to embarking on a very successful 2022-2023 school year.
The goal for the coming year is to provide a rewarding and fun learning experience for everyone where bonding, leadership, and personal growth are always at the forefront.
May The Force Be With Us,
Paul Portugal – Mr. P
Physical Education Teacher – Elementary
