About Brook Norris, School Counselor
Welcome to Kyrene Aprende Middle School!
Hello Families, I am Brook Norris, the counselor here at Aprende Middle School. I have my Bachelor’s degree in Education and hold my Master’s degree in Social Work. My heart is happiest in the school environment, and middle school students are my favorite age. As a parent of two teenagers, I also experience the trials and tribulations of raising children through adolescence.
Middle school students face unique challenges, developmentally and personally, that can have an impact on their school performance. My role is to support student academic, personal, and social development. I use a mental health perspective to understand and respond to those challenges our students may be faced with.
I do not work alone; I am part of a great team here at Aprende. Students may be referred to speak with me by a teacher, administrator, or they can request to talk personally. Additionally, I am happy to check in with students referred by parents/guardians. I truly feel Aprende has the best of everything to offer and am grateful to work with our wonderful community.
If you ever have any questions, I can be reached by email at BNorris@kyrene.org or by phone at 480-541-6247.
