Mrs. Elizabeth C. Wood

Welcome to the 2020-2021 school year at Howard Norman Elementary where we are growing leaders! As a Leader in Me campus, staff and students learn and apply timeless principles that help everyone lead their lives in an effective way through personal and interpersonal growth. 

My name is Elizabeth "Beth" Wood. I am the Instructional Coach at this inspiring campus. My job is to bring evidence-based practices into classrooms by working with teachers and other school leaders. Our goal is to increase student engagement, improve student achievement, instill leadership skills, and build teacher capacity. I have been in education for over 25 years in various roles. I have taught first, third, fourth, and fifth grades, math and reading interventions, as well as teachers and teams through staff development and instructional coaching. I am starting my 18th year in Hutto ISD. I am a proud hippo!

My passion for teaching and learning is driven by everyone I serve at HNES. It is an honor to partner with staff, students and families to ensure our students achieve at the highest levels and are prepared for the future. I am looking forward to an awesome year together!
