James the Rocketeer Norman

Normanism

Walking through the second floor of the A building, you will hear an energetic and passionate voice, shouting out AP U.S History terms like Compromise of 1850 and Kansas-Nebraska Act. He is the lead singer in his own teacher band. He is the teacher with the spirit of a bearcat. He is one of the only two AP U.S History teachers at SMHS, and his name is Mr. Norman.

Mr. Norman has been teaching at SMHS for years, starting in 2008. He has taught various courses, including U.S History, U.S. Government, Economics and AVID. 2013-14  is his first year to teach AP U.S History. “It’s not a easy class to teach, but I would like to take this challenge,” said Mr. Norman.

Instead of making his class like a fast-pace boot camp, he makes it more collaborative, “I don’t want to make my class to be a competitive environment for students, and I want them to learn for fun, not for grades,” said Mr. Norman. In order to prepare his students to do well on exams, he also spends his free time having review sessions.
