    Hi! Welcome to Mrs. Portwood's class this year. My name is Lyric Portwood and I have been teaching at South since 2007. I have a Bachelor's Degree in Biochemistry from Kennesaw State University and a Master's in Teaching Chemistry from Kennesaw State University. I also hold Education Specialists Degrees in Both Chemistry Education and Teacher Leadership from Kennesaw State University and Piedmont College. Throughout the years, I have taught Chemistry, Honors Chemistry, AP Chemistry, Physics, and Honors Physics. I was honored to work with the National Science Fou dation for 5 years on a NOYCE grant in which I mentored and engaged in leadership within the chemistry and physics education community. I am currently working on another NSF grant, the T-Lead Project, collaborating with Middle Tennesee State University. I have 3 sons also, Kaden, Kason, and Kolson! I look forward to an exciting year with you!
