Dear Adams Parents & Students:

Welcome to another semester at Adams High School! My name is Ryan Porter and I will be teaching Shakespeare, Composition 12, Language Arts 9 and 20th Century Literature.

I have a degree in secondary education (social studies and English) from Rochester College as well as a degree from Oakland University in History. Before coming to AHS, I had the privilege to teach English 9, English 10, and AP English Language, and Composition at Oakland Christian School.  Last year, I taught Big History and Language Arts 9 at Adams High School while completing my student teaching.

In my past professional career, before pursuing a degree in secondary education, I owned and operated my own business, was a store manager for Starbucks, and worked at Barnes & Noble as a community business manager working with schools on fundraising, reading initiatives, and book sales while supporting the local nonprofit community through events and in-store promotions.

My wife, Jen, and I live in Rochester Hills, love our community and like to get involved in a variety of ways. In my free time I like to read, play basketball, eat good food, and spend time with family (we have 10 nieces and nephews!).

I am very excited to start the second semester teaching at Adams High School. I consider myself blessed to be a part of the AHS community, and I look forward to helping facilitate your academic growth while getting involved and meeting you and your family! Looking forward to an exceptional rest of the year!

Mr. Ryan Porter
