Junior High- Ms. Norten

Welcome Back!

My name is Kelly Norten.  I am new to Taft School, and I am excited to be part of the Taft Family!  This will be my ninth year teaching middle school, and I am looking forward to working with your child!  


My degree is a B.S. in Mathematics with a Minor in Biology, and my certification and master’s coursework is in Secondary Education (grades 6-12) from Roosevelt University.  I have taught in Naperville and Minooka, and I am very excited to be here! I have three children, ages 13, 15, and 18, that keep me busy outside of the school day, and we are all excited to start a new year!


My hope is that we can work together to give your child the best possible experience in reaching their mathematics goals. I regularly post our daily activities and assignments on my Google Classroom, please ask your child for their login information so that you can stay involved!  Also posted are the class policies and expectations that your child will be held accountable for, if you have any questions please do not hesitate to reach out to me to discuss. Email is the most expedient means of communication.


Thank you for your time, and I am looking forward to a wonderful year!
