Mrs. Michelle Punch-Norwood-Lead Counselor and 7th Grade

Hi, I am Michelle Punch-Norwood and I am thrilled to be the awesome Lead Counselor at Dueitt Middle School.  I began my teaching career in North Forest ISD in 1994 as a 8th grade Science teacher at Northwood Middle School, 6th grade Science at Keahey Intermediate and 7th – 8th grade at B.C. Elmore Middle School.  In need of a change, I went to Hoffman Middle School in Aldine ISD. In 2006-2007, I came to Spring ISD were I Taught 10th grade Biology and 12th grade STAAR Science at Westfield High School.

I am an alumni of Texas Southern University and Prairie View A & M University.  I have one 18-year-old son, Ray, and we are explorers.  He recently graduated from Westfield High School, Class of 2020, and he will be attending college in the fall. We are so proud of him.  I have been married for 20 years and he still makes me laugh. 

I love middle schoolers because they are big elementary school kids.  They still need you to listen to them and they want to pretend that they have life all figured out.  I love helping them through the road blocks of life.  I also believe in being stern with them while providing a continuous supply of love and support.  Welcome to the new school year.
