My name is Brandon Norman; I am one of the Physical Education teachers at Macedonia Elementary School. In addition to teaching elementary I teach one 9th grade class at BHHS.I’m an assistant football coach along with being an assistant coach for the softball team at BHHS. I have a Bachelor of Science degree from Lander University. Motivated by the coaches and teachers I had in throughout my years in school, and by being able to go back to my high school to coach varsity football, track and field, and softball. Which gave me a great opportunity to utilize a variety of teaching techniques such as hands on learning, time management, and managing of the space the students are in safely at all times. That I now use in the classroom daily.
My philosophy is to educate them in the knowledge of skill but as well as the knowledge to cooperate with others in an open environment. I will equip them with the necessary skills and knowledge that will allow them to see the value of a healthy lifestyle and the benefit of physical activity for the duration of their life. Exposing students to various physical activities, sports, and methods of fitness can better provide enjoyment of physical activity, as well as build social, psycho-motor, and cognitive skills.
