Welcome to the 2021-2022 school year!


Melissa Porter- 7th Grade ELA/ALPS

Welcome to JN Fries Middle School!  This is my twenty-second year teaching and my fifth year at JNFMS.

 I graduated from Appalachian State University in 1998 with a degree in Special Education, LD. I later returned to ASU for my Master's Degree in Reading Education, K-12. Outside of school, I  enjoy spending time with my family and weekend trips to the beach.  

The best way to reach me is through email.  I will respond back within 24 hours.
