Melisa Norwich has always planned on returning to middle school, but she feels especially lucky to have been chosen to join the staff at Weddington Middle School teaching writing and study skills. She was born and raised in Springfield, IL, received her B.S. at MacMurray College in Jacksonville, IL and soon after moved to Florida so that she could teach and scuba dive. She received her Masters in Educational Leadership at University of Southern Florida and met her husband. They now have a beautiful 7th grade daughter. She has tons of education experience, including having worked with exceptional children and in administration. Ms. Norwich says she loves our wonderful staff and the amazing students at WMSl!
