Mrs. Jessie Norris
My name is Jessie Norris, and I teach English Language Arts at Liberty Middle School. I am new to the Liberty MS family this year, and I bring eight years of teaching experience in both English Language Arts and Reading instruction.
I am lucky to have many "hometowns" - I am an Army Brat, so I had the privilege to live in a variety of wonderful places growing up! When it came time to decide on my post-secondary adventures, I decided to attend Creighton University. In 2013, I earned my BA in English with a specialization in Secondary Education. Upon graduation, I began my teaching career with the Omaha Public Schools, where I taught Reading and English Language Arts for the past eight years. I have experience teaching these courses at the inclusion, standard, and honors levels. In 2016, I completed my MA in Educational Administration - Principalship at The University of Nebraska at Kearney. This summer, we made the decision to relocate to Madison, and we are elated to join such a welcoming community!
When I am not teaching or working in my classroom, I love spending time with my husband, our daughter, and our fun-loving dog! We enjoy exploring our new hometown and the surrounding areas! We love playing/watching sports, being outside, reading books, cooking up some new recipes, and playing board games!
I look forward to our learning journey this year!
