Kate Blazer: Principal
Carolyn King: Assistant Principal
About Mrs. Blazer:
I am from South Carolina and graduated from Queens University of Charlotte with a degree in Biology. I continued my education at the University of North Carolina at Charlotte earning two master's degrees one in Educational Leadership and the other in English as a Second Language. I taught for five years at the high school level before becoming a dean of students, assistant principal and now principal. This is my first year as principal at Norwood Elementary School. I am so excited to working in and with the community of Norwood. We have some amazing students and staff at Norwood and I look forward to continuing to see us grow this year.
I am married to Clint, who teaches in Cabarrus County. We have one child, our fur baby Shelby. When not at school, Mr. Blazer and I spend lots of time with our family and friends. We enjoy travelling, going on adventures together and going to concerts.
