School Counselor

Mrs. Norman's Bio

Hi, I am Mrs. Norman and I'm so excited to be your Lexington Elementary School Counselor this year!  I have been a school counselor for 9 years, the last 2 years I was at our High School here in Marlington so I may have seen you around the district.  I feel so blessed to have a job that I absolutely love!  I can't wait to meet all of my new students.  When I'm not at work I love to spend time outdoors.  I enjoy kayaking, hiking, and swimming.  I also spend a lot of time watching my son play baseball and basketball.  I have been married for 20 years and we have one son who is a freshman in high school.  I have lots of beautiful nieces and nephews too and we love spending time with family.

CARE TEAM

We have CARE teams at all of our elementary school buildings. CARE teams help utilize resources available within the school building or educational community to meet the needs of the child.  Our CARE team staff meets regularly in a confidential setting to discuss any struggles that our students have. These struggles could include academics, behavior, emotional, social, or other. 
Parents/Guardians give consent for their child to receive any support services that the CARE team suggests.
