• My name is Mrs. Portis. I was born in Chicago, IL, but grew up in Atlanta, GA. I graduated with a Bachelor's in Biology from Tuskegee University. A few years later, I went on to pursue and graduated with my Master's degree in Human Nutrition. About nine years ago my family and I moved to Houston, due to my husband's job. Along with being a teacher, I am also a nutritionist, mentor, inspirational speaker, and talk show host. I love traveling, exercising, being with my family and friends, and helping others achieve their goals. I am excited about making this your student's best year yet!
