Teaching for the last 26 years, I gained much of my experience in the area of Special Education at the Elementary Level.   After 14 years in another system, I came to Tuscumbia City Schools in 2007 as the Inclusion Teacher at Deshler High School.  My passion is school guidance counseling and I consider myself as an advocate for ALL students. I can not say enough about my excitement to finish out my career in the Tuscumbia School System and how thrilled I am to be here.  Thanks for having me! 



I am the full-time Guidance Counselor at RE Thompson Intermediate and I am blessed to the have the opportunity to work with THE BEST students and faculty/staff around!  I am a highly qualified teacher with 26 years of experience in education.  My experience includes elementary school teacher, special education, and counseling, working with students K-12.  I feel very blessed to be a part of the Tuscumbia City family. 

I am happily married to Ben Norton and my family lives in Muscle Shoals.  I am the proud mom of two amazing children!  My son, Collin, is 24 and my daughter, Kellee, is 20 years old.  I am a member of Christ Chapel Church in Florence, AL.
