Welcome to First Grade!
Hello, my name is Miss Porter and I am so excited to be teaching first grade at John Adams Academy. John Adams Academy is an amazing school with strong values and excellent academics and I am so fortunate to be part of the JAA family.
Here’s a little bit about me: I received my Bachelor of Arts in Liberal Studies from Sacramento State and graduated from William Jessup University with my Credential and Master of Arts in Teaching. This is my third year teaching first grade at John Adams Academy. I have been volunteering and working in elementary classrooms for ten years and have loved every second of my time in the classroom. I have such a passion for working with children in the educational setting and am overjoyed to be teaching first grade again this year. I am a huge animal lover and have spent years volunteering at local rescue organizations. I recently adopted a 12 year old Maltese Yorkie mix named Max. He is the sweetest and cutest dog and has been the best company. During my free time, I enjoy paddle boarding on the lake and spending time with my family and friends.
This is going to be a wonderful school year and I am looking forward to getting to know all of you and your scholars.
