Principal's Corner

I am married to Ronnie Norris. We have 3 children – Caleb, Kylee, and Cole. I have been an educator since 1993 and feel fortunate to be the principal at Bel-Aire Elementary School. During my years of teaching, I have enjoyed many different experiences with students. I have taught first, second, third, fourth, and sixth grades as well as Special Education. I also served as an Instructional Coach for Elementary Schools.

I look forward to working with our students, teachers and families as we continue to make each year great.
On a personal note - I am a VOLS fan. Go BIG ORANGE!
