Mr. Jeff Norton
Get to Know Mr. Norton
I am excited for another great school year!
I was born and raised in Plattsburgh, NY, and graduated from Seton Catholic Central School in 2004. I have one brother, Matt, and he and his wife, Erika, have two beautiful children, my niece, Vivien, who is 4 and my nephew, Tyler, who is a 1. I attended Skidmore College in Saratoga Springs, and completed my education at SUNY Plattsburgh, receiving a B.A. in Biology in 2008. I attended SUNY Plattsburgh for my Master’s Degree in Childhood Education and graduated in 2009. I was hired at Rouses Point Elementary in 2010 and am currently in my 11th year teaching kindergarten.
I played three sports in high school – soccer, basketball, and baseball. I continued to play baseball in college for both Skidmore College and SUNY Plattsburgh. I still play volleyball, soccer, and baseball in various local leagues, in addition to officiating high school and college soccer. I also love to ski every chance I get each winter.
In the summer I work as a camp director at a YMCA Day Camp called Camp Jericho. I like to think I have both the best summer and school year jobs around! In addition to working as a kindergarten teacher, I also coached boys’ basketball for many years, and am currently the varsity baseball coach for NCCS. I ran the K-Kids (Kiwanis Club) program here at school for about 5 years and I am also proud to be the one of the directors of our wonderful 6th Grade Outdoor Education Program at NCCS each June.
Thank you for taking the time to get to know me. I hope we have a great partnership in working toward your student’s success this school year!
