Hello! My name is Mrs. Norton and I am SO THRILLED to be your teacher for the 2020-2021 school year. This school year will be like no other year that we've had but I’m excited to embark on this adventure together. We will be learning a lot while working continuously on our growth mindset and building positive relationships in our classroom and school community. Go Riggs Roadrunners!
My Education and Professional Background
I’m originally from California, where I graduated from SDSU with my BA in Liberal Studies and then my multiple subject teaching credential. I then taught both first and second grade for 7 years before having my twins and staying at home to raise them. After moving to Arizona two years ago, I graduated from ASU with a Master’s in Curriculum and Instruction in Early Childhood Education. I'm proud to be a part of the Riggs family as both a teacher and parent.
My Educational Philosophy
The children in my class work together to create an environment where every student is comfortable and willing to take risks with enthusiasm and confidence. I believe that every student not only has the ability to learn but has the right to be taught in an environment that supports their whole self. My goal is for all students to develop a love of learning with a growth mindset.
