Mr. Terry Norris - Computer Essentials, Digital Journalism, Archery, FBLA

My name is Terry Norris.  I teach Computer Essentials and Digital Journalism.  I am the Future Business Leaders of America student organization sponsor and the Archery coach.  I received my bachelor's (2008) and master's (2010) degrees in Human Environmental Sciences from the University of Alabama.  I was born and reared in Atmore, Alabama.  Becky and I have been married for 19 years and have two children - Chris and Rebecca, five grandchildren - Jayden, Halle, Hayes, Hadleigh, and Camden, and one dog - Sadie Mae.

After retiring from the United States Marine Corps in 2011 with 26 years service, I taught for two years at a military school at Eglin Air Force Base in Fort Walton Beach, Florida.  In 2013, I joined Fairhope Middle School to run the computer Help Desk. In 2017, I entered the classroom to help students master basic computer and digital journalism skills. My teaching philosophy is centered on the student and three simple things: be prepared to learn, respect yourself and others, and give you best effort in everything you do.

Apart from teaching, I enjoy spending time with my family, college football, archery, and all things technology-related.
