Mrs. Boers

I grew up in Norwood and attended school in the very building in which I now teach!  I am a Limestone and Western Illinois University graduate.  I returned to school at Eureka College to get my Learning Behavior Specialist endorsement.  I have taught general education and special education at the middle school level.  I feel so fortunate to be able to work in this district.  It truly holds a special place in my heart.  I am married with a son and daughter.  My husband and I spend a great deal of time volunteering in the Peoria area.  I love teaching and look forward to helping my students reach their full potential.

Mrs. Colville

I have been teaching at Norwood since 2004. During my time at Norwood, I have taught primarily Language Arts, but have taught almost every subject as well. I am ecstatic to be teaching RTI/Title 1.   In addition, I am also the webmaster and newsletter coordinator and coach the Speech team.  I am an avid Cubs fan, and love to watch games, both on television and at Wrigley Field.  I love to spend time with my sons and family.
