WELCOME  to 8th Grade English Language Arts!
Mrs. Whorley Reading    
My name is Ashley Whorley and I am so excited to start my third year at Porter. Before coming to Porter, I taught high school English and Special Education at Vicenza American High School. I have my Bachelor's degree in Religion//Philosophy & English and Master's Degrees in Secondary and Special Education with endorsements in 6-12 English & Humanities and K-12 Special Education. I can't wait to share my love of reading and writing with you and to start working with you and your parents. If you have any questions please feel free to e-mail me at [email protected]. This year is going to be an adventure and I am so glad we are going to be on it together!
