Meredith Porri

Welcome to Mrs. Porri's Website!


A little bit about me: Teaching is a third career for me.  Previously, I was a professional actress in New York and Connecticut, and most recently, I was a professional ballroom dance competitor and instructor.  I have always had a passion for theatre and literature, and I am looking forward to incorporating my love of the arts into your English education this year!


This year (2018-19), I will be teaching English 9, English 10, Intro to Theatre Performance, and Public Speaking.  I am very excited to dive into the many genres of literature (and theatre) and develop your reading, writing, and acting skills this year!

I am one of the Advisers to the class of 2021, so along with Mr. Vitale, we are going to get the 10th grade excited for another great year!

I am also the LSM Dance Team Coach.  I plan on growing and developing LSM's dancers into a cohesive group of talented athletes in both performance and competition.  
...5, 6, 7, 8!

In addition to coaching the dance team, I am also the faculty choreographer for the spring musical at LSM.  The March 2019 show is TBD. It will be full of fun (and lots of dancing!).  I hope you will come out and join the fun this winter!

If singing and dancing is not your thing, consider auditioning for the fall play It's a Wonderful Life (yes, based off the movie).  I will be directing this debut piece, and I'm so excited to bring it to the Region 10 community this November!

Below is a Porri family photo (2016): Pumpkin Day with our little pumpkin!  Cecilia Rose was born June 22, 2016.  My husband teaches instrumental music at the Litchfield Intermediate School, and he also coaches the girls varsity tennis team for LHS.  We are both fans of music, theatre, and tennis, so you will see me at both teams' matches, cheering the girls on!  
Ceci will cheer too!
