Ms. Kerri's page
My name is Kerri Porter. I was born and raised right here in Chattanooga, TN. It will always be considered home to me! I graduated from the University of Tennessee at Chattanooga in May of 2017 with my Bachelor’s degree in Early Childhood Education and endorsements in middle grades and special education. I married my husband, Trevor, in June of 2018 and I have two dogs that I adore, Coco and Ellie Mae.
I knew from a very early age that I wanted to become a teacher! Teaching has always been my passion and I feel so lucky to have a job that I absolutely love!!
I completed my student teaching placement at Normal Park in first grade with Mrs. Lafferty in the spring of 2017. I was so nervous but the second I walked through the doors I felt welcomed and wanted. I spent 15 weeks alongside Mrs. Lafferty & the rest of the first grade team & loved every minute of it!! I fell in love with all that the school had to offer and the closeness of the community where everybody knows everybody! I knew how much I wanted to be a part of the Normal park family and when the opportunity arose I landed what I consider my dream job!! I feel so honored to be starting my third year at such a wonderful school with my amazing Pre-K team!
I look forward to meeting new families, students, and build new relationships with the awesome staff here at Normal Park!
