Meet the Administration Team!
Principal Mrs. Sherry Schliesser
Assistant Principal Mr. Jason Norton
I began teaching elementary school 50 years ago and have loved most every minute of my career in education. I have a Master's Degree in Elementary Education from Radford University in VA and a Master's Degree in Public School Administration from North Carolina State University. I have been at Kingswood Elementary School as Principal for 14 years. I have two adult children, seven grandchildren and a puppy named Sunny. The beach (any beach) is my favorite place to be.
My name is Jason Norton, and I am thrilled to be at Kingswood Elementary serving as your Assistant Principal! I was born and raised a Buckeye in the small town of Bellefontaine, Ohio. I graduated from Clark Summit University with a degree in Elementary Education and most recently from the University of North Carolina at Chapel Hill with a Masters in School Administration. My wife (of 14 years) and I have lived in North Carolina since 2006 and have been blessed with three amazing children, Reese (10), Carter (7), and Will (4). Sports are another personal passion of mine, as I am an avid fan of the Cincinnati Reds, Cincinnati Bengals, and THE Ohio State Buckeyes. In my spare time, I love to go on adventures, set personal goals that challenge me, and run long-distance races. I have had the opportunity to teach and work with hundreds of elementary students and educators throughout my fourteen years in Wake County Public Schools. I am passionate about being inside of a school (virtual and in-person) and enthusiastically working with students and families to ensure that school becomes a place that they ALL feel loved, supported, and CAN experience success! I am honored to be able to partner and serve with all the wonderful staff, students, and families of Kingswood Elementary, and I can’t wait to meet and get to know each of you!
