Message from Mrs. Porter:
Welcome to my page!
Here is a little information about me:
I was raised about an 1 1/2 hrs. from St. Louis in a small town. I have lived in several states and traveled quite a bit, but have always found myself back home here in St. Louis.
I truly believe I have finally found my calling as a teacher. This is my second year at Compton Drew and I look forward to many more years here. Prior to teaching, I worked in law enforcement for about 10 years. As exciting and challenging as that career was, I believe teaching provides more excitement and challenges than I ever could have imagined.
I am married with three chidren - 19 year old twins and a 12 year old (So I understand the middle school brain on several levels!)
In my free time I love to read, cook and attend sporting events. We have very few weekends througout the year that are not filled with soccer or basketball, but I always find time to watch Football on Sundays during football season!!
I believe education is the single most important thing a person can give themselves. As a life-long student myself, I hope to share my love of learning and encourage my students to achieve beyond their imaginations.
