PLAYED BY KIMMY // SHE/THEY // DETECTIVE CONAN, AMURO TOORU
☀️ Originally, Porter hailed from Put-In-Bay, Ohio. A small 'village' as wikipedia refers to it. With residents barely hitting 150 people, Porter knows exactly what living in a small town is like. He was quick to get out of there, applying and moving out to University of Notre Dame once he graduated high school. It was a almost four hours west of him, and in Indiana but he was happy to be able to experience 'city living'.
☀️ Somewhere along the way of nabbing his bachelors he got into the head space of becoming a teacher once he was bored of whatever jobs his currently career held for him. He figured one of his multiple minors would help him pick up a job, and a bit of extra education along the way wouldn't be too bad
☀️ Speaking of which, despite a strong pull towards literature and theater arts for electives and hobbies, Porter actually graduated university with a major in Intelligence Studies. At 22 he was working an entry level intelligence analysis position for the FBI on the east coast.
☀️ After almost 10 years doing analysis studies, he decides its time for a break. He's tired of being cold and he begins looking into applying to jobs in California. The old idea of being a teacher pops up and he looks into the requirements. It takes a couple of years but eventually, the man gets his certificate in teaching in the state of California, as well as completes multiple programs to help transfer him from one field to the next. His old love for literature reignites and he takes on curriculum building with enthusiasm.
☀️ The move to Peachtree is rough. He's so used to bigger cities, it's heartbreaking to go back to what he had grown up with. But he likes his job, even if he hasn't started it and is eager to make a good first impression as an English teacher.
☀️ Porter quickly found out htat even if was a small town, there's still pristine beaches and wonderful national parks nearby. His craving of connectivity to big city blocks is replaced with a sense of peace he draws form nature. Usually. Porter still feels a bit of claustrophobia when wandering Peachetree and will often take weekends off to drive out to bigger cities.
☀️ do, noo
✨ he's the teacher that will interrupt other teachers classes if he's friends with them. totally conspires with students to make minor pranks on fellow department members as well. They don't always go right though.
✨ Switches between carrying about current books he;s reading and a kindle as sometimes the books he wants aren't available on that format. In general, he likes the idea of books, but his shelves at home are too full.
✨ Reads any genre. From non fiction true crime (one of his favs) to young adult fantasy. He's open to trying new stories and authors out. It's mainly the reason he assigns choose your own book reports to students. For the recommendations.
✨ He's a believer of the power of communication and counseling. Tends to avoid calling parents on misbehaving or bully students and opts to send them straight to the counselor's office instead of the principal's. He may be viewed as weak, but at the end of the day he imposes the rules in his classroom.
✨ Is not one to stray from bribing his students with pizza parties and extra credit to garner their enthusiasm. He makes a leader board of all his classes in hopes that the inter-period competition will lead to overall better learning and understanding.
✨ Recently adopted a fat cat with a nubby tail and a ripped ear from a local shelter. He has dubbed this tomcat Sir Lancington De Valentine, but he calls his black cat Lacey.
✨ Tries to discreetly date multiple partners on and off, or all at once. He never settles simply taking advantage of the nice company and good meals.
✨ Really terrible cook (which is why he depends on eating out a lot)
✨ Able to speak multiple languages but not completely fluently. Languages include Spanish, Latin, Italian, and a bit of French. He's interested in learning Farsi and Korean at some point. For fun.
✨ Fond of capybaras
