Hello! My name is Ms. Brewer-Norsen and this is my forth year at River Bend Middle School. Here is alittle about myself recently. I have been busy the last two years. I married my husband May 2019 and took an amazing two week honeymoon to Italy! I would go back just for the gelato!! Yummy! We bought ourselves our first dog as a wedding present to eachother. His name is Ollie and he is now a one year old labradoodle who is still very puppy and full of energy. He loves to play fetch and play with other dogs. Lots of wet kisses coming to you soon! Even more exciting, we welcomed our FIRST baby this past March! I had a baby girl on St. Patrick's Day (3/17/2020). So we have been in quarantine with a newborn and puppy.....So we have been entertained to say the least!
My teaching and coaching career given me a lot of different experiences! I moved down from Buffalo, NY (GO BILLS!!) when I started here at River Bend where I taught for three years previously. I taught for two years at an inner city school: one year at the Middle/High and one at elementary. I was also an Adapted Physical Education teacher for a year as well. I was grateful to teach every grade level in my first 3 years of teaching! I'm very excited to be here and see what the year brings!
My education is an interesting path.. My first degree is in childhood inclusive education and middle school English from SUNY Fredonia, where I also played basketball for four years. My second degree is from The College at Brockport which is in Health and Physical Education. I also received my Master's degree from here as well. Prior to teaching, I was an assistant women's basketball coach with the team at Brockport. I spent 4 years coaching, going to school, and subbing at the local schools in Rochester, NY.
Outside of school, I love spending time with my family, any outdoor activities, and traveling. Most importantly, LET'S GO BUFFALO!!
