Zach Porter

porter_selfieMy name is Zach Porter and I’m excited to be teaching 4th grade! I grew up in Arlington (I went to McKinley, Swanson, and Yorktown) and am proud to be working and living in the county that helped raise me. I went to Denison University and received my Bachelor’s in History. After college, I worked as a Manager of Communications at a non-profit in DC for a few years, before turning to graduate school to get my Masters of Elementary Education from Marymount University. I’ve been at KW Barrett since January of 2012, when I taught 5th grade. I then taught 2nd grade for 3 years and am now happy to be teaching 4th.  I love hiking with my wife Rachel and my dog Brady, reading, running, board gaming, kayaking, and playing with my daughters, Ramona and Margaret. I am looking forward to another fantastic year!
