Ms. Michelle Anne Norman
Hello! Welcome to English III. I'm Ms. Norman and I'm excited to be in my third year at Forest High School and almost three decades in the field of education! I am a graduate of Michigan State University. Go Spartys! I have a B.A. in Education K-12 with a double major in English and Psychology. I am also working on my M.ED. at Southeastern University.
A little more about me...
I'm a busy mom. My children take up a lot of my free time. My youngest son, Jorden, plays soccer for a competitive traveling soccer club in Ocala. Jacob, my middle son, recently greaduated from Forest and is starting college this fall at New Hampshire Insitute of Art/New England College. My oldest son, Ben, is a software engineer and lives in Boston, and my only daughter, Alexandra, lives in Orlando, and is an artist. I also have two little Yorkies, Izzybelle and Nala.
Some of my hobbies include road trips to explore beaches and springs around Florida, kayaking, fishing, surfing, paddle boarding, gardening, and reading. Books are another one of my passions and book stores are my weakness. I never watch TV. I'd much rather get lost in a great book.
I've lived in Marion County for four years. I relocated from the Orlando area to be closer to my parents as they are getting older. I was born and raised on a farm in Michigan. I enjoy being in a classroom and look at everyday as an adventure.
