The April 2022 Pole Vaulting to Positivity  WINNER is 

Riverside  Middle School Math Teacher

Tara Porreca 

Mrs. Porreca can find the good in any situation. Whether it is figuring out what worked or what could use improvement she is the go to person to make you smile, laugh and find the good in anything you are trying to do. A picture is worth a 1,00 words and when randomly asked to "pose" for a picture, she put on her silliest pose, because she exudes happiness in all situations.  A positive plus a positive equals a positive, but no matter how you add it up, Mrs. Porreca equals awesome!
