Mrs. Jessica Norwood


Hello! I am thrilled to be back at G.W. Trenholm Primary. I have 24 years in education. I've taught kindergarten, first and second grades. I served several years as an adjunct professor at the college level. I've served in the roles of reading interventionist, Literacy Specialist/Coach at G.W. Trenholm and as an assistant principal at Deshler High School.

When I am not working, I enjoy spending time with my family, travelling, reading, working in my yard, cooking and tending to my animals. I have 3 married children and 1 son getting married in November, an adorable granddaughter and another granddaughter due in December. I have a dog, cat, donkey, 7 goats and 2 chickens. I am also a huge sports fan. I love watching the Deshler Tigers play any sport. 

I absolutely love my job and find it rewarding to build relationships with children and their families. I believe that all children can learn and, as an educator, it is our job to meet them where they are and move them forward. I look forward to partnering with you and your family and helping your child grow and achieve.
