My name is Rebecca Norris and I am looking forward to sharing this year with you at Round Rock HS! This is my second year as a Dragon, and I will be teaching Pre-AP English II and Academic English II. I graduated from Texas Christian University with a Bachelor's in Secondary Education ELA/ESL and a Master's in Secondary Education. Go frogs!
While I was born in Texas, I've spent most of my life living in a small town west of Chicago. What I love most about the city is exploring Michigan Avenue, Cubs games at Wrigley Field (WORLD SERIES CHAMPS #FlyTheW), and deep dish pizza. In my spare time, I enjoy cooking, playing golf, doing calligraphy, and anything outside in the beautiful city of Austin!
Last year in March, my family welcomed the sweetest little addition, my niece Piper Jane! Life is fun being an aunt!
Some of my favorite books include The Art of Racing in the Rain by Garth Stein, The Time Traveler's Wife by Audrey Niffenegger, The Martian by Andy Weir, William Shakespeare's Twelfth Night, and all the Harry Potter books by J.K. Rowling. Be sure to tell me your favorites! I'm always looking for my next great read!
I enjoy teaching because I truly love helping students find their voice through reading and writing. Every student has a completely different story to share with the world, and THAT is what makes us powerful. I believe everyone can learn and be successful. Set goals, work hard, and have fun!
