Tristan Norris

5th Grade Teacher

Degrees and Certifications: Masters of Education – Azusa Pacific University Bachelors of Arts, Biblical/Theological Studies major – Pastoral Ministries minor – Multnomah University

Mr. Norris is passionate about developing and inspiring students to be their best selves, and to lead them towards Christ. He graduated from Multnomah University with his BA in Biblical/Theological Studies, and minored in Pastoral Ministries. He then received his Masters of Education at Azusa Pacific University. The foundation for his teaching philosophy is to focus on holistic student learning; in order for students to reach their full potential, they need to be inspired in all areas of their development. He is also passionate about faith integration: The truth of Scripture is not outside of other learning subjects, it’s woven throughout the truths of them. In his free time, Mr. Norris loves spending time with his wonderful wife, two young boys, and very large white dog. Going on bike rides, playing in their backyard pool, and Sabbathing on weekends are the highlights of time with his family. Before you ask, Mr. Norris is 6’5″, and no, he does not play basketball. However, he’s a huge Portland Timbers fan, and deeply loves the Pacific Northwest culture, especially coffee…lots and lots of coffee.
