Assistant, Forest Side Casa
Jill Norris joined our community in March 2018 as a teacher in our Forest Side Casa. Jill has been working with children in various capacities for about 40 years. She has been an in-home daycare owner, a full-time homeschooling parent; which included teaching math, language and art to homeschooling groups, a life guard, and swim instructor.
When Jill’s youngest daughter entered college so did Jill, and she earned her Bachelor degree in Human Studies and two Montessori teaching certificates, Primary and Infant/Toddler. Jill has been officially teaching as a Montessori teacher since 2010. In her words, “I cherish family, which includes three grandchildren and five grand dogs! Family weekends, cooking, reading, quilting and walking on the beach are my favorite things to do. I feel extremely privileged to be working with pdxMC and your children!”
