I am Mr. Ortner and it is an absolute pleasure to welcome you to my class website. I am so excited to meet each and every one of you and I am thrilled to be here at Atascocita Springs!
I have been teaching for 7 years, all of which in 3rd grade math/science. My first year at ASE last year was amazing! My previous 5 years were in Spring ISD while my first year was in the small town of Crockett, Texas. I received my Bachelor's Degree in Education from Sam Houston State University.
My amazing wife and I were married in June of 2012. While we have no children yet, we have 3 crazy chihuahuas - Riley, Tipper and Trixie - who keep us on our toes. They are all sisters that were born to the same litter. We didn't have the heart to split up so we kept them all! We also recently set up our first reptile, Bananas, who is a Bearded Dragon. I am huge sports fan (Go Texans!!!!) and enjoy spending time with my family.
