My Classroom Mission
I will vigorously challenge all of my students to achieve their highest academic potential in math. I will achieve this with the help of my students, their parents, and my colleagues.
I have 36 years of experience teaching students in North Carolina. This is my eleventh year at East Middle.
After graduating from Meredith College with a Bachelor of Music degree, I did additional study receiving certification for teaching kindergarten through 6th grade and reading K-12. I earned a Master's Degree in Education from North Carolina State University and an advanced certificate in Curriculum and Instruction. Most recently, I received National Board Certification as a Middle Childhood Generalist.
My husband, Dr. Jeff Porter, is Pastor of First Baptist Church, and we have one son and a daughter-in-law who live in Hillsborough, N.C. We have two precious grandchildren. My favorite thing to do is go to the North Carolina mountains to ski, hike, or relax.
