Family Picture
My name is Lisa Norman.  I grew up in Odessa, Texas and graduated from Permian High School in 1984.  While attending Odessa College, I met my husband, Coby Norman.  We married in 1986 and moved to Lubbock, Texas to attend Texas Tech University.  I received my bachelors degree in 1990.  This year I will start my 30th year of teaching.  During my time as an educator, I have had the privilege of teaching 1st-8th grade, Music, Art, served as a campus testing coordinator and curriculum director. My family and I have lived in many wonderful communities and Farwell is no exception!  I am looking forward to teaching 8th grade Reading and Language Arts!

"If you want to change the world, pick up your pen and write."  Martin Luther

Reading and writing go hand in hand.  We will write in class everyday!  Everyone has a story to tell and we will discover the best ways to tell our stories.  If we don't tell it then who will?
