Degrees and Certifications:
Mrs. Susan Norris
Welcome to Vernon Elementary School!
My name is Susan Norris, the former Susan Lollar. I was born in Vernon, Alabama. As a child, I attended Vernon Elementary School and graduated from Lamar County High School in 1980. In June of 1985 I graduated from Auburn University with a Bachelor’s degree in Early Childhood Education (K-3). That fall I started teaching kindergarten at Vernon Elementary. In 1991, I earned a Master’s degree in Early Childhood Education from the University of Alabama. (My education may be divided but my heart belongs to Auburn.)
I am married to Rodney Norris of Tuscaloosa, Alabama. I have two daughters. My oldest, Anna, is a graduate of the University of North Alabama and is currently a Marine Biologist. Laura, my youngest, graduated from Troy University with a degree in Fine Art. She is now serving in the United States Air Force. I am a super proud Mom!
My hobbies include traveling, and reading. My Husband and I love animals! We now have five cats, three dogs, and one bunny (I am bunny sitting for my daughters.) All of our pets are rescued.
As I begin this school year, I can honestly say that I love teaching as much as I did when I began in 1985. I have been truly blessed by God. Mark Twain once said, “Find a job you enjoy doing, and you will never have to work a day in your life.” I count it a joy to be a teacher of young children. I believe Kindergarten is magical, and I embrace each moment.
Thank you for sharing your precious child with me.
