                                          in our year together they are 
                            not just kids on my list, they become a part of my heart!


                                                                           WELCOME TO MRS. NORRIS' 1ST GRADE CLASS


 We have begun a wonderful and exciting year, building more knowledge, seeing old friends and making new ones.  I love teaching, but teaching was not my first career. I hadthe wonderful opportunity to have two very rewarding careers.  My first career was with the Texas Department of Human Services Child Abuse Division.  I returned to school after retiring from TDHS to earn Bachelor's Degree in Psychology and aMaster's degree in Educational Psychology from University of the Incarnate Word.  It was my dream to work with young children and help to enrich their minds.  This is not just a job for me.  It is my passion.

We use Class Dojo as a communication tool.  I am able to communicate in real time with parents utilizing this program.  It is a great way to keep up with your child's experiences and learning while at school.  I continuously post pictures, videos and important announcements through this program. All parents should have received a letter with information needed to join our class.  If you have not received a letter yet, and you wish to create a Class Dojo account, contact me and I will provide you with the information necessary to join our Class Dojo family!
