I had Dr Porter for a few different courses in the early 90s and still consider him to be the best teacher I've ever had and one of the smartest people I've ever met. I still think about his teaching methods and conversations we've had. He tried to let students come to their own conclusions about topics, think critically, question the establishment. I wish I knew then what I know now. Our conversations would certainly be different now that I'm older and have stronger opinions! Jenn M

I was in Dr Porter's Gender Studies class. These classes were not only interesting and engaging, but he challenged all his students to consider important questions about gender equality in the media, in our music, in print ads, in movies, and in the language we used. He engaged us in discussions about rape culture and consent culture years before this issue was being considered in the main stream. His teaching methods gave us vital tools to think deeply about what we saw outside of his class.

Dr Porter taught unlike any other teacher. He was great at his podium, knew his stuff, and we learned more from him than any other teacher.

He was good - I'm glad he decided to show up. I don't really think the school deserved him,lol. Suffice to say he was another favourite. Made "History" a class to go to back in the day.

He was one of the best teachers ever. I never understood why he continued to teach at Ajax High up until '03. He really prepared you for university life and put your education in your own hands. Sleep if you want or study

Dr. Porter was too smart to be teaching at AHS, but he was the most inspirational teacher I ever had, and the first person to teach me to "think".

Awesome teacher. Kinda intimidating to ask a question since it'll take 10 mins to get it answered. But he was a great teacher and funny most of the time. - Nate

talks for TOO long during class. Goes on too long about one topic all period. Sometimes its a discussion between him and another student. so the rest of the class is left hanging! boring teaching methods.
