Jessica Norwood, Assistant Principal

  • Welcome to the 2021-22 School Year

    I am so excited to begin my first full year as Assistant Principal of Deshler High School.  Deshler High School holds a special place in my heart. My father, Tandy Gerelds, coached here for many years and  my own 4 children are Deshler graduates.  I am thankful for the opportunity to give back to a place that has been so important to me.  This will be my 24th year in education.  I spent the majority of my career at the elementary school level. In February of 2021 , I made the move to the highschool.  It has been rewarding to reintroduce myself to many of my former G.W. Trenholm students.    

    As the assistant principal, it is my job to support; support student success, parent success, and the success of our faculty and staff. Our goal at Deshler High School is to facilitate minds, encourage risks, support struggle, learn every day, build relationships and cultivate dreams. I believe strongly that the school can not do it alone and understand the importance of the home school relationship.  The sky's the limit for DHS. Please join me in making this the most successful school year in Deshler High School history! 


    Please feel free to contact me with any concerns you may have.
