Miss Porterfield

Hi everyone!  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 8th year of teaching and I could not imagine doing any other career.  I recently received my Masters of Eduation in Teaching from the University of South Carolina.  I know this year is going to be different and challenging, but I am excited for what's to come!


I love singing and the arts is my passion.  We love music in my class!  I am in the Sandlapper Singers and continue to use my passion of singing and music in the classroom.  I love hanging out with my family and friends (and dog, 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.
