Hi, I'm Dr. Laura Porter.
I attended the University of Illinois at Chicago with a teacher education scholarship for elementary education and then received a master’s degree for early childhood special education. Later, I completed my doctoral studies in Special Education at George Washington University.
I am a former early childhood and special education public school educator. Over the course of my career, I have been a curriculum developer, assessment specialist, professional development trainer, assistant professor, student teacher supervisor, accreditation director, and higher education administrator.
I enjoy serving educators by helping to address the challenges they meet daily as they nurture the talents of the next generation.
I am married and have a small bichon poodle dog named Pippin. Together we enjoy hiking, biking, snowshoeing, and exploring new places. We also like to garden and cook delicious meals. I continue to enjoy teaching coursework and volunteer in my community.
