Nora Alman teaches sixth and eighth grade Social Studies at Quantico Middle/High School in Quantico, Virginia. She received her B.S. in Elementary Education from Bowie State University and her Master's in Educational Leadership from George Mason University."My personal philosophy of teaching and learning is that everyone, no matter what his/her present level of intellectual functioning, has the right and the ability to learn. As a teacher it is my job to make sure that my students have the right tools and a safe environment in which to learn." Nora's principal writes, "As a former instructional coach for the Quantico Program for Instructional Effectiveness, Nora proves that every day is an educational event of high energy and effective communication for all of her students. Her enthusiasm is contagious and the respect she shows to all her students is one tool she uses to move them through multiple perspectives of Social Studies curricula."
