Degrees and Certifications:
Ms. Tanya Norris
My name is Tanya Norris. I have a Bachelor of Arts degree in Sociology from The University of Texas at Austin. I am a diehard Longhorn fan and I bleed orange!!! GO HORNS!!!!
I took a break from my career to stay home for several years having children. I have 5 children that range in age from 35 to 22. I am very proud of them. They are all either currently in college or college graduates.
When I rejoined the workforce I decided I wanted to become a teacher. I did graduate studies and completed my teaching certification at Texas State University. GO CATS!!
This is my 16th year teaching for NEISD at Steubing Ranch Elementary. I was here to open the school and my children attended school here as well. I am certified Early Childhood through 6th grade and ESL. I have taught 3rd, 4th, and 5th grade. I currently teach 5th grade.
When I am away from school I love to ski, kayak, and hike in Colorado. At home, I love to spend time with my husband, children, and dogs. My ideal day is laying in a hammock, reading a great book, and looking at a mountain.
