Hello students and families,
My name is Miss Norelli and I am thrilled to have you in my first grade class this year! We are going to have so much fun while we learn new things. I moved from Connecticut all the way across the U.S. to teach on beautiful Whidbey Island. I have been a teacher since 2010 and my family here includes my son and my two chihuahua dogs, Sabrina and Coco. Anyone who knows me knows I love adopting dogs, reading, writing, art, coffee, and going to garage sales and thrift stores. I am also the author of 10 children's books that I will read to the students in our class.
My goal in class is to make sure that every student knows they are valued and welcomed. I put a great emphasis on Growth Mindset, which means that everyone can learn, is smart, and their brain is growing.
I can't wait to meet you!
