Chanelle Porter, Junior High Teacher

Being a student at King's gave me the opportunity to grow academically, establish myself in my faith and become rooted in a lifelong community while pursuing my career goals. I now teach at Strathcona Christian Academy in the Elk Island school district. I became a teacher because I want to make a difference in the lives of my students, I want to love the children that don't feel loved. I gained the practical skills I needed to do this at King's and now I get to pursue my passions daily. 

"Being a student at King's gave me the opportunity to grow academically, establish myself in my faith, and become rooted in a lifelong community while pursuing my career goals."

My time at King's was a time of challenge, discovering myself and making incredible memories. My faith was challenged for the first time at King's, but in my classes I was given the space to question and dig deeper - this made my faith stronger. I saw God in my studies, I saw His beauty and creation in my Math classes. 

I chose to complete my undergraduate degree with a major in English and a minor in math - an interesting combination I know, and not one that many students at King's had done before me. I then went on to complete an After Degree in Secondary Education. King's helped me organize my courses so I could graduate with that I wanted, when I wanted.
