All About Mrs. Porter

Welcome to B9! This is my second year here at Summit Intermediate.  I received my Bachelor’s degree in Liberal Studies with an emphasis in CLAD at CSUSB and my Master’s of Education from National University. I began teaching in 2003 as a 5th grade teacher at Lightfoot Elementary. Since then I have also  taught 1st, 2nd, 3rd and 7th grades for the Etiwanda School District. This will be my second year teaching intermediate students and I couldn’t be more excited! I will be teaching your students on Mondays and Tuesdays. On a personal note, I have been married for 18 years and currently have two very busy boys at home. I enjoy being outdoors and take advantage of any opportunity I can to go hiking or biking.

All About Ms. Tawney

Welcome to 7th grade!  I am so excited to be at Summit Intermediate.  This will be my 22nd year teaching.  I received my Bachelor's of Mathematics from COE College in Iowa (where I grew up) and my Master's of ELA from CSUSB. My teaching career started in Rialto, where I taught 7th grade math for 3 years.  From there I went to Etiwanda Intermediate and taught 7th grade math/science.  When Grapeland opened, I moved there and taught 1st grade, 3rd grade and 5th grade.  In 2016 I became a Summit Shark and taught 6th grade math/science. Last year I taught 7th grade here at SIS and am looking forward to another great year!  I will be teaching your students on Wednesdays, Thursdays, and Fridays.  I have one son, Jonas, who will be an 8th grader here at Summit.  He is involved in musical theater, which keeps us very busy.  I enjoy watching him perform, going to baseball games and concerts, and reading a good book.
