Mrs. Maria Orta



Welcome to Maria Orta's page!  My name is Maria Orta and I was a Sped Parapro last year here at Amphi High school.  I am currently Co-Teaching Science and teaching American Govt./Economics. 

Why I Am Committed to Amphi

Watching the progress of a student makes my heart full, it is very rewarding to not only see but if I can help someone be successful, then I am fulfilling my calling.

Defining Moment in Education

While working as a Parapro here at Amphi, I was privileged to meet some wonderful students that were having a difficult time learning. When I was able even to make a small difference with these students, I realized that this was something that I wanted to be a part of, and it also allowed me to utilize my skills and degree.

Core Educational Beliefs

Every student is teachable, they're just waiting for someone to believe in them, no matter what their situation may look like.

Prior Experience

Sped Parapro, Substitute taught in South Texas, Paraprofessional with United Cerebral Palsy of Southern Az. 

Hobbies and Interests

Writing (I'm writing a book), eating great meals with my family and playing board games, going to church and reading the Bible
