Mrs. Liz Porter

Amanda Flake is the current music specialist, and next year she will teach 1st grade.  She said, “I love all types of music, so it made me happy to teach music every day, but my favorite part of my job was getting to know every student in the school.  I will really miss being the music specialist, but I am excited to teach 1st grade because I love the magic that comes with teaching young children.  My favorite part of teaching is thinking of ways to make things more fun and active.
