Mr. Porter

My name is Scott Porter and this is my third year teaching at SIS. I am originally from Sacramento, California. I have taught at international schools n Myanmar, South Korea, and now China. In the past, I have taught Kindergarten and fourth grade. This year I am very excited to teach fourth grade again! I particularly enjoy teaching at SIS because of the strong, caring community and professional growth opportunities.

I am a dedicated, passionate teacher who strives to create a supportive and nurturing learning environment where students can learn, grow, and reach their full potential. Our classroom facilitates independent critical thinkers who know how to solve problems and feel empowered to follow their passions. I am a lifelong learner and I hope to instill curiosity in every student.

In my free time, I enjoy hiking, mountain biking, snowboarding, scuba diving, reading about current events, and traveling to new places. I am delighted to live in Shekou with Isabelle, my wife, who is an engineer working in Shenzhen.
