Hello! My name is Terri Norman, and I am a business education teacher at Capital High School. This is my 9th year teaching at Capital, and my 21st year overall. My education includes a B.S. in Business-Accounting from Montana State University, as well as a B.A. in Business Education with a Marketing endorsement from the University of Montana.
I grew up in East Helena and currently live in Helena with my husband and son. I enjoy camping, hiking, snowmobiling, kickboxing, Zumba, and spending time with family and friends!
I look forward to a great year with great students at Capital High School!
