Miss Amanda Porter

I am excited to start my sixth year at Partridge! I spent my first five years of teaching at the Sixth Grade Center. A little about my family; my parents divorced in 2001 and both remarried in 2003.  I have a biological brother, Ben as well as two step brothers, a step sister, and a sister-in-law. We all work a lot but get together when we can! In 2011, I became an aunt and it has been so much fun!!  I am also recently engaged to my wonderful fiance, Michael, who is a third grade teacher.

I have many hobbies! One of my favorites is reading and some that I love are the Harry Potter series, the Green Rider series, and Pride and Prejudice. I also enjoy photography (mostly nature), gardening, watching TV shows and movies, and trying new things! I obviously love music; I listen to a wide variety. Some other hobbies are making crafts, putting puzzles together, and helping out at the local theater. Some of my goals are to teach all students to love music in some way and to have an appreciation for other genres! Someday I would love to visit Europe, especially London, and anywhere in Ireland.

I can't wait to see what the new year brings!
