Myrna Foster

Dean of Students

Myrna Foster is the Dean of Students at Norton Science & Language Academy. Maiden name of Balmaceda, Myrna was born and raised in Ciudad Obregón Sonora, México. From a very young age, she realized she wanted to become an educator. Myrna inherited from her father the love and passion for education, students and their families, and the commitment to molding these young lives.
Myrna held her first teaching job in México at the age of 19.  She had just graduated as Executive Assistant at the time and worked as an English-Spanish grammar and shorthand teacher for 5 years at two different schools (CONALEP and Instituto Metopolitano).
She was then handed the opportunity to move to the United States where she received her Spanish Bachelors’ Degree at Cal State University, Dominguez Hills, her teaching credential and Master in Education from Azusa Pacific University, and her Master in Educational Administration from Cal State University, San Bernardino. Myrna has been in the classroom for 17 years and truly loved every minute of it.
About 10 years ago, she made the move to pursue her Administrative Credential and with the support of great mentors and friends, she was successful. Mrs. Foster has now been an Administrator for seven years, five of which have been here at Norton Science and Language Academy.
"Helping others is my passion and the loves of my life are my two children." - Ms. Foster
