Hello! My name is Ms. Brewer-Norsen and this is my seventh year at River Bend Middle School. Here is a little about myself and my family. I married my husband back in May of 2019. We 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 for each other. His name is Ollie and he is a 4-year-old labradoodle who is still very puppy and full of energy. I am also a very proud Girl Mama to two beautiful girls, Quinn and Rory. Quinn was born on St. Patrick's Day of 2020 so when the world shut down. Rory was born in May of 2022 so it has been fun to see them start to play together. As if we weren't crazy enough, my husband and I decided to get Ollie a fur sibling. We welcomed another labradoodle to our family this summer and her name is Nala.
Prior to teaching at River Bend, I taught and coached for three years in Buffalo, NY. GO BILLS! My teaching and coaching career has given me a lot of different experiences! 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!!
