Ms. Norkus

Welcome to my classroom! My name is Judy Norkus and I am an Earth Science teacher here at Salamanca High School. Originally from Long Island, I graduated from SUNY Potsdam in 2016 with a Bachelor's degree in Geology with a minor in Environmental Technology. After a short span in Colorado, I was accepted back to SUNY Potsdam for my Masters in Education. After graduating from my Masters in 2018, I moved to the area and was tremendously excited to start my career here in Salamanca! I love science, crafts, my dog, and living in western NY!
