Mr. Kevin Porterfield

Originally hailing from just outside the "City of Brotherly Love", I moved to Greensboro, NC in 1996.  I left Temple University for UNCG, and graduated  with a Bachelor of Science in 1999.  This will be my 21st year teaching.  I started out my carreer as a PE & Health teacher before moving to EC in 2010.  In addition to PE, Health, and EC, I am also licensed to teach Middle Grades Mathematics, Middle Grades Science, and K-6 Elementary Education.

My family and I have lived in Jacksonville, NC since 2000.  My wife is a teacher as well with OVS teaching kindergarten..  We have two children, both girls, and enjoy spending lots of time as a family at the many parks scattered about Jacksonville.  My parents, now retired, live in Cape Carteret.  They moved here in 1996, when my father was transferred to Camp Lejeune from the Philadelphia Naval Shipyard.
