Mrs. Kelsy Porter
My name is Kelsy Porter and I am the PE and Health teacher at Summerwind. I have been teaching for 12 years - all of which at Summerwind! I am passionate about teaching students the skills for how to be healthy and active for a lifetime. I like for students to focus on fitness and fun - exercise and movement should, above all, be enjoyable.
In my free time, I enjoy spending time with my family, riding bikes, reading, doing puzzles, lifting weights, jumping rope, and travel.
With the help of the National and World Champion Summerwind Skippers Jump Rope Team I run a jump rope club on Wednesday's after school. I have been the Head Coach of the Summerwind Skippers for 9 years and before that time, I was a competitior and team member. I've been part of this group since 1995 and have had many adventures! Highlights include competitng in Australia, Belgium, and South Korea, being a part of the documentary JUMP!, and competitng on America's Got Talent (2011).
I look forward to working with students and inspiring them to get active and have fun!
