Caitlin Norton

With a passion for art and an enthusiasm for helping children, Caitlin found herself on the fast track to becoming an art teacher.

As an undergraduate, Caitlin has discovered ways to gain classroom experience. As a tutor for Junior/Senior Scholars—an after-school program for at-risk elementary and high school students—Caitlin enjoyed valuable teacher-student interaction. She has also taken advantage of the program’s summer internship opportunity, which allowed Caitlin to teach art for three weeks in her own classroom.

“My philosophy as an art teacher is to help my students understand that each and every one of them can create something.”

Though Caitlin has her plate full, she was able to travel to Italy as part of a two-week December Term study abroad course.

“If a full term of studying abroad isn’t an option for some students, D-Term is a great alternative.”

Caitlin is also pleased to have been awarded Teach First and Dunham Fund scholarships. Teach First is a program for first-generation college students in pursuit of education degrees, and the Dunham Fund is awarded to aspiring teachers who pledge to teach in Aurora, Batavia, Indian Prairie or Oswego school districts.

“As long as I teach art someday, I know I’ll be happy!”
