Teaching approachGlenn Normore’s ability to stand on his head is widely known among the students who now understand the concept of reciprocal fractions. Mr. Normore’s field trips range from the local wetlands, to outings that take students to interactive drug awareness stations. By putting them first, Mr. Normore makes sure that his students become first and foremost, engaged citizens.
- Mr. Normore takes time to plan lessons and makes sure that each one is something to remember. He takes the time in advance to walk his way through an entire SMART Board lesson in order to create “cues” for his “magic pencil”.
- Mr. Normore was inducted into the Newfoundland and Labrador Hall of Fame for his tireless dedication and his involvement with youth in planning, organizing and working with a number of teams.
- Mr. Normore’s success in obtaining provincial math promotion grants enabled him to set up evening tutorials with hired tutors to assist with homework issues. The initiative has improved his students’ academic abilities by approximately 10%.
"On any given day, when walking by Glenn’s classroom, you will see an animated teacher (…) speaking with individual students to check in on their understanding of a topic, or perhaps discuss a personal challenge, while always providing words of encouragement. Glenn knows his students and his students know him."
"It has been my pleasure to work with Glenn for the past three years. (…) His dedication to his students, his passion for teaching and his determination to bring out the best in each and every student is unsurpassed."
