Emma Porter

“My name is Emma, and I am entering my senior year at Bryn Mawr College where I study Political Science with a minor in Education. Upon graduation, I look forward to pursuing a career in which I can use both of these fields towards improving the American education system. I’ve enjoyed working for an after school program in the Philadelphia area where I tutor middle schoolers in mathematics. Learning Journey will allow me to gain more experience in a classroom setting and give me the opportunity to create innovative curricula in an engaging classroom environment. I look forward to returning back to school after LJC and applying what I learned to my studies in Education. At BMC, I also lead a student group for first generation college students called “First Goers”. I am originally from Rockton, IL, where I enjoy spending time with my two dogs, Skipper Jack and Cozy.”
