Mr. Joel T. Porter

I am excited to embark on this new journey of teaching and learning with the wonderful students and staff of Palmetto Middle School. I bring over a decade of teaching experience from my native country of Guyana, the gem of South America.

This is my first-year teaching at Palmetto Middle School. I strongly believe that language holds the power to connect people across cultures and foster a deeper understanding of the world around us.

My aim as a teacher of English Language Arts is to create an engaging and inclusive learning environment where every student feels valued and supported. I believe in the importance of building strong relationships with students and their families, as this partnership is essential for academic success. I am dedicated to helping each student reach their full potential and achieve their academic goals, allowing them to explore, learn and enhance their abilities. We have already started the school year with enthusiasm, curiosity, and a commitment to learn.

Together, we can make this a successful and fulfilling year of learning.
