Norah graduated from Mary Baldwin College with a Bachelor of Arts in Theater and PK-6 Elementary Education certification. She worked in Fredericksburg and Spotsylvania schools at the beginning of her teaching career. After a teaching hiatus to raise children, her family moved to Montpelier in 2017 and she began working for Hanover schools. She gained valuable experience working in different situations as SOL tutor, homebound instructor and long-term substitute. Norah thought she would try to pursue work outside of education but God has shown her that she is not quite done with it. Through prayer, encouragement from her family, Alexis and Nan, Norah is following God’s call to be part of FCA and she is very excited for what’s to come.  Norah currently teaches our 4th and 5th grade class.
