My PPS Journey

My PPS Journey

Each day, thousands of Portsmouth Public Schools faculty and staff come to work and educate, support and inspire children of all ages.

Some of these employees are just starting out in their professional careers, others have dedicated decades of service to the division.

Each person, each journey, is unique.

Yet, no matter the role (teacher, administrator, bus driver, building maintenance and many more) something inspired them all to share their talents and passions here in Portsmouth Public Schools.

The My PPS Journey series aims to highlight the committed people who make up this division, document their stories and showcase the myriad ways you, too, can build a career in Portsmouth.
