Bachelor of Arts in Early Childhood Education Certified USC Coaching Teacher
Hello! My name is Emily Porterfield and I will be your child's first grade teacher. I am originally from the Upstate of South Carolina but I am proud to call the Midlands my home! I received my Bachelors of Arts Degree in Early Childhood Education from the University of South Carolina (Go Gamecocks!). This is my 6th year of teaching and I could not imagine doing any other career. I am currently receiving my MEd in Teaching from the University of South Carolina.
I love singing and the arts is my passion. We love music in my class! I was in the female a cappella group at USC and continue to use my passion of singing and music in the classroom. I love hanging out with my family and friends (and puppy, Piper), cooking, and relaxing by the lake and beach.
I joined the Nursery Road Elementary Team in 2014 and I am so proud to be a Nursery Road Champion! This is going to be an amazing year and I can’t wait to get to know each of my students and families this year. We are a community of learners in first grade, and I am so excited to see each of my students blossom and grow throughout this year.
I am looking forward to a fabulous year ahead!
