My name is Porshia Franklin. I was born and raised in Birmingham, Alabama. I have a daughter who is also new to the Trussville School System. I am thrilled to be teaching GaTE, which has always been my passion! Some of my hobbies include thrifting, crafting, shopping, going to the beach, and spending time with my daughter. Some of my favorite things are lighthouses, anchors, and antiques. I’m looking forward to an awesome year!
