Resource/Inclusion Teacher

Nora Trout Bio

I am proud to be part of the Bennett Family! This will be my ninth year at Bennett Elementary and 11th year with McKinney ISD. I serve as a Resource/Inclusion Special Education Teacher. I have a true passion for helping each child progress in all areas of their academic and social development. I strive to create a community of learners that nurtures this growth in a positive, fun environment.

I grew up in Garland, Texas and received a Bachelor’s Degree in Marketing from the University of North Texas, and my Masters in Teaching from Texas Woman’s University. I have been married for over 20 years and have two children in college. One is a Junior at the University of Texas in Austin and the other a Sophomore at the University of Texas in Dallas. We enjoy watching the Dallas Cowboys and Mavericks games ! I also enjoy reading, cooking, music, and spending time with friends and family.

I cannot wait to kick off a new year with you and your children!
