Mr. Joe Porter


Professional Background:

My name is Joe Porter.  I was born and raised in Cedar Falls Iowa where I attended the U. of Northern Iowa. I received a K-8 B.A. in Education.  I completed my Masters in Technology from Lesley College and am considering an Administrative degree (maybe!).

On a personal note, I have two children with my wife, Stephanie.  Ethan is 1 8and Ella is 16.  They keep us very happy and busy! 

This is my 30th year of teaching.  I began with 4 years in Kansas, took a year break to pursue other interests in Virginia, then returned to teaching in Colorado.  This is my 15th year in Texas and I am still not used to the heat! 

Please feel free to contact me anytime.  The best way to do this is through my school email;

I feel privileged to be your child's science teacher.  Some goals that I have set forth for your science student are as follows:

-  Questioning why something has occurred and forming an hypothesis and investigation (experiment) to explain/test the occurrence.

-  Understanding the importance for safety in science labs.

-  Learning to work appropriately with other student scientists in a partner or group setting.

-  Keeping a science notebook organized, along with other materials for class.

-  To have fun with science, remembering that safety is always the first consideration.
