Ariana Portales


Hello! My name is Ariana Moreno Portales better known as Mrs.Ari. I am recently married and I am a mother of a beautiful baby boy, Mateo. I graduated from the University of Houston-Clear Lake with a Bachelor’s of Arts in Early Childhood – 6th grade. My passion for becoming a teacher started in high school where I was part of the childcare program. Ever since, I have worked with children from PreK through 6th grade.

This is my sixth year with our St. Augustine family. While at St. Augustine, I have taught 2nd Grade and I am currently the PreK 3 Teacher. Being able to have the opportunity to see my students grow not only academically but spiritually sharing God’s love is the most rewarding experience for me as a teacher.
