About Me

Hello, my name is Erika Norris and I am the Art Teacher for both Monkton Central and Beeman Elementary. I was born and raised in Middlebury, Vermont and have lived most of my life in this picturesque state. I now live in Chittenden County with my husband and our two children. I especially love Vermont summers and enjoy spending time camping, eating maple creemees, and being near the water! When I get time to make art, I love to create my own jewelry and find ways to upcycle would-be trash. I love to tinker with found objects and find new uses for old stuff.

I am overjoyed to be returning for my second year teaching in this district and feel fortunate that I get to be part of this amazing community!  I have been teaching for over 18 years and love sharing my passion for creating. As the Art Teacher I look forward to helping children flex their creativity, develop a growth mindset, and feel comfortable taking risks. Art has always been a relaxing outlet for me and I hope to find ways for all children to connect with the arts as well as their inner artist.
