HEATH — Heath Elementary School’s new principal, Jesse Porter-Henry, is no stranger to the school or the town.
Porter-Henry grew up here and was a Mohawk High School student when Heath Elementary School opened its doors, 20 years ago. His mother was one of the Heath Elementary School’s first teachers.
After serving as assistant principal of the Mohawk Trail Regional School for the past two years, Porter-Henry has taken a principal/teaching position at Heath.
Most of Porter-Henry’s mornings are spent teaching math and science to the school’s Grade 4 through 6 classes. He also teaches physical education to all classes and does most of his school administrative duties in the afternoons.
