Norma Coronado

I was born in Matehuala, San Luis Potosi, Mexico.  My family moved to the United States when I was 9 months old.  We settled in a small ranch near Hanna, Wyoming where my dad worked as a ranch hand.  As the family grew, my parents decided to move to Rawlins, WY.  I grew up with two sisters and three brothers.  Being the oldest daughter, one of my duties was to take care of my younger siblings as my parents worked.  I graduated from high school in 1989.  After a year out of school, I decided to go to the University of Wyoming, where I graduated in 1994.  I earned my Masters Degree in Curriculum and Instruction in 2005.
 
I started my career as a teacher in August of 1995 at York Middle School in the Mapleton School District.  Then in 1996, I moved to Overland Trail Middle School in the Brighton School District, where I spent the next 13 years.  When the opportunity came to open a new school, I jumped at the chance and in 2009, accepted the position as math teacher leader at Stuart Middle School.  I enjoy being with young people and I love teaching my students that they have the potential to succeed and achieve as much as they can. 
 
My husband and I live in Brighton with our son Christopher, who is a fifth grader at Turnberry Elementary.  I love to read.  My favorite authors are Harper Lee, Suzanne Collins, and Nickolas Sparks.  I also like to play with my son at the park and go swimming.  Scrapbooking and taking pictures are how I relax.  I would someday like to have a side career of taking photos of children.
