Mr. James Norton

I am entering my 18th year teaching, 5th year at OCHS, and 2nd year as a father. I'll be teaching AP Psychology, Psychology, and US History in Film. I have previous experience in all social studies subject areas as well as special education and gifted education. Before coming to OCHS, I taught and coached at Jackson County High School, Sprayberry High School, and Oglethorpe County High School. Most of my coaching experience has been in cross country and soccer. I was blessed to be a part of TWO state championships last school year with Boys Cross Country and Girls' Soccer. In my free time, I love hanging out with my little family, listening to music, and watching college football.
