Wayne Portee

“My name is Wayne Portee, and I am one of the English/Language Arts teachers. I have been with Saint Lucie Public Schools since 2005, and had the pleasure of joining the Performance Based Preparatory Academy family in 2019. I was born and raised on Long Island, NY, and relocated to Morgantown, West Virginia after high school, in order to attend West Virginia University. Seeking fun & sun, I moved to Port Saint Lucie, FL in 2005. After working with all student age groups in SLPS, I have determined that what I enjoy most is educating and being a positive impact on the high school population. When I’m not with the Stallions, I enjoy working out, repairing faulty computers for friends and family, and spending time with my wife and two children”.

Hello! My name is Samantha Robinson, and I’m thrilled to say this is my 3rd year teaching high school Digital Information Technology. I grew up in Fort Pierce, Florida and graduated with a Bachelor of Science in Organizational Management degree from Indian River State College in 2009 and a Master of Business Administration degree from Nova Southern University in 2015. I am currently pursuing my Doctoral degree in Information Technology from Capella University. This year, I will be teaching 4 sections of Digital Information Technology, 2 sections of Finance Literacy.
I enjoy exercising, traveling, reading, watching movies, and spending time with my family.
