Ms. Michelle Anne Norman
Hello! Welcome to English 3 & 4. I'm Ms. Norman and I'm excited to be in my second year at Forest! We are going to accomplish amazing things this year... Make it count!
I thought you might want to know a little bit about me...
First and foremost, I'm a mom. My children take up most of my free time. My youngest son, Jorden, plays soccer for a competitive traveling soccer club in the Villages. Jacob, my middle son, is a senior at Forest, and enjoys art and theater. My oldest son, Ben, is at the University of Mighigan, 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 watch almost no TV. I'd much rather get lost in a great book.
I've lived in Marion County for a couple 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 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. I've been working mostly in the field of education for 28 years now including administration. I enjoy being in a classroom and look at everyday as an adventure.
