Hello! My name is Ms. Porco and I am so happy to be your child’s Kindergarten teacher! We are going to have a great time learning and growing together. I have lots of fun and exciting things planned for us! We are going to sing songs, read stories, make projects, and learn so many wonderful new things. Although I will only have your child for a short time I want to make a contribution that will last a lifetime.
Ms. Porco in Kindergarten
I moved to North Carolina in July of 2015 with my dog Molly. A year later my fiance moved down. We love it so much here, that we decided to have our wedding here in Durham in May! I hold a Bachelors degree in Early Childhood Education with a concentration in Psychology. I received my degree from Dowling College on Long Island which is where I am from. I was born and raised in New York and this is where my extended family still reside. My parents and younger brother recently moved to Florida and love it there. This is my 7th year in education! In New York I spent my beginning years as a Pre-K assistant and grew into the position of a Pre-K teacher as well as a Kindergarten teacher. During the summers I was the assistant director of a summer camp that catered to ages 3-5. This will be my 3rd year teaching here at Carpenter on our fabulous Kindergarten team! Becoming part of the Carpenter Community has been an incredible experience and I look forward to the many years ahead!
