    Lisa Hendrix, Principal, C.S. Porter Middle School

    As a Texas transplant to Montana since the summer of 2005, I thoroughly enjoy the quality of life available in the “Garden City.”  I completed a Bachelor of Arts in Teaching in 1986 from Sam Houston State University, a Master of Science in Administration in 2002 from University of Houston, and I have been serving MCPS since 2006. My Montana licenses include a K-12 Administration, K-12 Physical Education and Health, Secondary Business Education, and Elementary Curriculum. My teaching experience includes a variety of positions which span all thirteen grades.  I am excited to be serving the C.S. Porter community and look forward to supporting all, students and staff, in pursuing their life-long goals.

    I have two guiding principles: work hard and be kind to others. These may sound simple, but they have superbly served as guidance during each of my teaching and administrative positions. For me, a principal is first and foremost a servant leader; but along the way you wear many hats: listener, communicator, visionary, program manager, decision-maker, and action initiator just to name a few. Together I know we can make the middle school student experience all that we wish it to be.
