About Me:
I'm Mrs. Ortu and I am excited to start my 7th year teaching science and 20th overall year teaching middle school. I love sparking curiosity and engaging students in scientific investigations! I live in Bordentown with my 9 year old daughter and 7 year old son (who both attend PMES) and my husband who is in the US Air Force.  I am a leader of my daughter's Girl Scout Troop and an active member of the First Presbyterian Church in Bordentown.  
Parent Contact:
I will send e-mail blasts home about every other week letting you know what we are learning in class and how you can be reinforcing concepts at home.  If you are not receiving these emails, please email me ([email protected]) and I will add you.  I encourage you to check PowerSchool regularly and encourage your middle school student to speak to me if there are concerns.  
Please have a composition book (or 1 subject spiral notebook) and pencils for the first day of school! 
Other helpful supplies (I have these all available to borrow): scissors, glue stick, highlighter, colored pencils.
Donations of tissues & disinfecting wipes always appreciated!!
