Porsha Lottes has been a third grade teacher at the Edgewood campus for the past five years. She is currently the grade level coordinator and also serves on the Tiger Team, a team designed around the use of new educational technology tools such as the interactive white board.
She graduated from Northern Arizona University with a bachelor of science in early childhood education. Longing for the ocean breeze and sunshine, Porsha immediately moved to Southern California after graduation and was hired as a Montessori teacher in Mission Viejo. She taught first through fifth grade in an all-inclusive elementary classroom.
After five years of Montessori teaching, she longed for a more traditional classroom. A good friend of hers kept raving about this new school she was teaching at and encouraged her to apply. One summer later, Porsha was teaching alongside her friend, here at Fairmont.
Having experienced a range of public and private school settings, she says, "Fairmont has been the best environment in which to work. Not only do we have the best administration, admissions, and co-workers, but also the best parents. Every day I look forward to teaching and working at such a wonderful school."
In her free time, Porsha is very involved in church and loves spending time with her family, reading, yoga, traveling, and being outdoors.
