Grade 4

Welcome to Fourth Grade!

Hello everyone! I’m Amy Norton, and I’m very excited to join the teaching staff at St. Charles Borromeo Catholic School. I will be teaching 4th grade. I’ve spent the last 12 years teaching at St. Mary Catholic School in Big Rapids. I am an Ionia native, where I attended Saints Peter and Paul School. Catholic schools have been an integral part of our family’s life, as all three of our children attended Catholic schools – both at St. Joseph in Belding and at St. Mary in Big Rapids. My husband John and I recently relocated back to the Montcalm County area, and I’m delighted to serve as a teacher here. Our oldest son, Kevin, was baptized at St. Charles years ago, so we’ve come full circle! I believe in teaching and living our faith and partnering with each child and their parents to maximize each student’s potential. I look forward to meeting you!
