Ms Porter is adored by her students at Lakeside Christian Academy. This nomination came from a parent at the school who shared with us that Ms Porter is a truly wonderful teacher!
We then asked Ms Porter a few questions…
How did you get into teaching?
As a child I did not have a positive school experience until third grade. My third grade teacher was wonderful. She inspired me to become a teacher. One of the goals that I set for myself when I became a teacher was to make school a fun and lovable environment for all the children that I would teach.
What do you hope for your students?
My hope for all of my students is to instill in them a love for learning. Each child is special and unique in their own way and I want them to know that they are special. Learning isn’t just something you do at school or the classroom but something you do for the rest of your life.
Anything you’d like to share with us? e.g. favorite moments, etc.
I have taught at a small Christian school for about 20 years. I have had the pleasure to watch children read their first words and write their own name. Each success came with struggles and a few tears as things didn’t always come easily. I want all my students to realize that they are unique and special in my eyes as well as God’s. As they grow things may come easily but some things will be a struggle but stay positive and work hard and you can achieve all your dreams!!!
