    Biography:
     

    My name is Trey Porter. I am a JAG Specialist at Roosevelt High School. I enjoy working with children and helping them reach for their dreams through their education. I believe every child brings value and contributes to the world and society we live. The future of education lies in the connection between the community, parents, students and educators. Teaching strategies, curriculum, and the class environment needs to be flexible enough to incorporate different learning styles, abilities, interests and cultural aspects in the classroom.  I believe the classroom is a space that deserves a nurturing attitude and commitment to justice.
