Miss Porterfield

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!
