Mr. Porcella

 

 

 

My name is Mr. Porcella and have been a resident of Hamilton since 1980.  I attended Reynolds Middle School and graduated from Nottingham in 1990.  As a matter of fact, I took wood shop in the same room that I will be teaching. I graduated from Kean College in 1996 with a  B.A. in Industrial Education.

I began my teaching career at Fisher Middle School in Ewing, staying there for 3 years.   I was then hired as a Technology Teacher at Reynolds Middle School, where I remained for the last 23 years.  In 2015, a Reynolds coworker of mine and I began an after-school Aviation Club, where students learn how to fly a plane using Microsoft Flight Simulator. Although I will now be teaching at Nottingham HS, I will still continue to run the Aviation Club at Reynolds MS.

This year, I am looking forward to taking over the Materials Processing Program here at Nottingham.  The courses I will be teaching are Materials Processing (Levels I - IV)  Students will be given a detailed course syllabus for their respective classes once the school year begins.

 

SUPPLIES:  Please be sure to have Pencils and a 2 pocket folder with some paper in it that will be left in the classroom for use during class.
