Mr. Mike Porter
HELLO, my name is Mike Porter. I am a 22-year+ veteran Automotive Technology Teacher!!
I am a General Motors trained technician. I received my Associate's degree in Applied Science from the GM ASEP Program offered at CPCC. I went to CPCC after I returned from active duty with the US ARMY, where I spent 8 years.
Upon graduation from GM’s program, I went to work at City Chevrolet in Charlotte NC, after working there for several years I moved to another dealership that provided me more education and an opportunity for career advancement.
I started my teaching career at STONEWALL JACKSON TRAINING SCHOOL in Concord NC. This was a lockdown facility for juvenile boys. I spent a decade teaching these boys the Automotive trade. This was a very challenging BUT rewarding job.
I left Stonewall and made the move to NORTHWEST CABARRUS HIGH SCHOOL. This was a GREAT move for me. This really feels like my second family here. I am very pleased to be a part of such a professional and caring school environment.
I look forward to speaking with you and seeing you around school or in classes!!
