Welcome to the Sandcastle
Jo Ann Norman, School Counselor, NBCT, NCC, MaEd

Mrs. Norman

I am a career school counselor with over 28 years of experience at the elementary, middle school, high school and college levels.  I live at the beach with my husband, "Fireman Bruce".  Our nest is technically empty now, as our son and daughter are grown and have families of their own, but there are frequently grandchildren and visitors around.  

I love the beach and any water activity, including boating and swimming.  I am a sun lover and enjoy sitting in the sand whenever possible.  I enjoy reading, knitting, writing and crafting.

I am a cancer survivor.  Since cancer, my favorite hashtag is #familyiseverything so I am a solid supporter of parental involvement and family connections.  If I can assist you or your child in any way, please feel free to contact me.

Counselor Credentials

I am a nationally certified school counselor (National Board Certified Teacher) through the National Board of Professional Teaching Standards and a Nationally Certified Counselor (NCC) through National Board of Certified Counselors, with a Master's degree from East Carolina University and many years experience as a counselor at multiple levels.
