Degrees and Certifications:
My name is Janet Nordstrom. I have lived in Madera for 18 years. I have a daughter in 12th grade, who loves music, plays the trumpet, and enjoys cos playing. I also have a son in 9th grade, who loves riding motorcycles, plays the saxophone, and would spend all day on video games. We love to take adventures to the mountains or the ocean and work on projects together.
I have been in education for many years as an office clerk, a classroom aide, and 17 years as a classroom teacher. I have taught K, 1, 3, 4, and 5. My favorite part of being an educator is teaching children how to read and love math.
In my spare time I love to read, bake, and watch some TV.
I have a BA in Liberal Studies and my teaching credential from CA State University, Bakersfield.
I have a MA in Teaching English Language Learners from Western Governors University.
