On Maternity Leave
Bonjour! My name is Stefanie Porterfield and I am part of the wonderful French Immersion team at École Mother Teresa School! I graduated from Campus St Jean at the University of Alberta in 2009 with a Bachelor of Science degree and a Bachelor of Education degree, specializing in French Immersion Secondary Math and Science. Raised in Sherwood Park, AB, I moved to Red Deer that fall to start my teaching career at École Camille J. Lerouge School in Red Deer. The next school year, I transferred to École Mother Teresa School and am now in my tenth year at EMTS having taught middle school Math, Science, Health and Phys Ed over the years, both in English and in French Immersion. I have coached and reffed volleyball at the middle school level for 10 years and have been the school coordinator for the Quebec Trip for the last 4 trips! My husband and I are parents to a one-year-old and I am a stepmom to a 7 & a 12 year old. I love many sports and my favourite teams are the Edmonton Oilers, Edmonton Eskimos, New England Patriots and Toronto Blue Jays. My passions are learning languages, traveling and photography. 3 continents down, only 4 more to go!!
