Mrs. Kernita Porter


I was born in Manning, South Carolina and moved several different places as a military ‘brat.” My father dedicated 23 years in the U.S Army. After graduating from High School, I graduated from Charleston Southern University in May 2000. I furthered my education and attained a master’s degree in Counseling in 2005 and a master’s degree in STEM.

After teaching science for 3 years, my principal asked me to get Gifted and Talented endorsed. While endorsed, I taught science lab for 3 years to 3rd and 4th graders. Later on, I taught math and science to third and fourth graders for 5 years. I got certified to teach Project Lead the Way, a STEM curriculum. The next school year I taught STEM and third-grade math and science. You could say I love school, but I really have an unquenchable thirst for knowledge!

I have an extremely busy professional and spiritual life while my husband, Eugene (retired Airforce veteran), and I raise two young kids, Kania (6) and Eugene (10) in Ladson. Eugene will be in fifth grade at ABES and Kania will begin second grade at WRES! In my “spare” time, I love making crafts or room decor, selling and wearing jewelry, traveling (preferably a new place), and taking the time to have a good laugh!

Let’s make this a great year!
