Mr. Terry Norris, 7th Grade Computer Essentals Enrichment & Digital Journalism
My name is Terry Norris. This year I will be teaching Computer Essentials and Digital Journalism. I am the Future Business Leaders of America student organization sponsor and an assistant 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 18 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.
