Welcome to the 2022-2023 school year!
Melissa Porter- 7th Grade ELA/ALPS
Welcome to JN Fries Middle School! This is my twenty-third year of teaching and my sixth 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.
