Mrs. Porterfield

Welcome to the 2018-2019 school year at Carolina Forest International Elementary School!  I have worked in the classroom since 2000.  I was a teaching assistant for 3 years before becoming a teacher.   I received a Bachelor of Arts in Elementary Education from UNCW.  Go Seahawks!  I have also taught second, third, and fourth grades.  This is my fifteenth year teaching, and my thirteenth year at Carolina Forest International Elementary School.  This will be my fourth year teaching kindergarten.

I was born and raised in southern New Jersey, right outside the city of Philadelphia.  I came to North Carolina in 1996, and to Jacksonville in 2000.  My husband, a teacher at Jacksonville Commons Middle School, and I have two daughters.  Violet is a fourth grader, and Eve turned four in June.  We couldn't imagine working and raising a family anywhere else!
