Dr. Charly Porter Kusta
My name is Charly Porter Kusta, and I am proud to be a member of Hartselle City Schools. I received my Bachelor's degree in English and journalism from The University of Alabama, my Master's degree in Education from the University of Alabama at Birmingham, my Education Specialist degree from the University of Montevallo, and, my Ph.D. in English/Language Arts Curriculum and Instruction from The University of Alabama.
Prior to becoming an English teacher, I spent four years working for Southern Living and Coastal Living magazines as a copy editor and writer, so I love crafting stories, traveling, and eating good food!
I am married to Kevin Kusta, an attorney in Decatur, and we have two children, Porter and Collins. Both children are also proud to be a part of Hartselle City Schools. In our free time, we enjoy spending time with our Scottish terrier, Doyle, and traveling the world.
