Good Day to all of My Wonderful Students and Parents,

    My name is Portia Denney Anderson. I am a 1995 graduate of Vidalia High School. I graduated from Brewton Parker in 2001 with a Bachelor's of Science Degree in Middle Grades Education, and graduated from GCSU in 2007 with a Masters in Educational Leadership and Administration degree. I will be attending Georgia Southwestern State University this fall to further my education in Middle Grades and advance my degree to a Specialist.  This is my 20th year in the Education system of Georgia. I have taught Social Studies and Math the past 19 years.  I will be respresenting JR Trippe Middle School as their Teacher of the Year for 2020-2021. I was a tutor and PE Assistant at SDM for a year and a half (97-98).

     I am married to Staff SGT David Anderson and we have an awesome son, David Jr and daughter, Heather. I love to hunt, cheer on my GA Bulldogs on Saturdays, spend time with family and friends. I am glad to be back in Vidalia and teaching at the GREAT JR Trippe. 

     If you need me throughout the year, you may email me at or call the front office at 912-537-3813.

     We will have a great year because MATH ROCKS!!!!
