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 recently graduated from William Jessup University with my Master of Arts in Teaching. I have been volunteering and working in elementary classrooms for eight 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 this year. I am a huge animal lover (especially cats) and have spent years volunteering at local rescue organizations. 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 meeting all of you and your scholars.
