Years have gone by but I never told him how important his example as a teacher was to me as I am also a teacher. He was honest & sometimes blunt but never cruel. He cared more about his students than most teachers that I had. he was a good listener & provided examples to help. He often used members of his family in his examples to make things clear. You were a great teacher Norm.
Norm is someone that I remember years aftwer that I had him as a teacher. He was amazing and I think that he is still amazing since he still helps me when I ask his advice.
The amazing old guy just retired a semester ago. He'll be missed by most.
Norm was just awesome... i just got to love that grumpy shirt he has.. also his class is a little hard with all the work but he gets you to learn your stuff and is very helpful...Totally awesome
I did not do well on his tests but that is not his fault. He is an amazing teacher with great energy!
Best teacher for me that I have since I begin school. Help me to learn sociology since it is hard. I did good in his class because I improve with his help. I will be sure to take class with him.
Allo Norm. You are not easy but you had confident in me and give me courage. I want you to know that I thank you for believing in me and pushing me to finish college.
A very honest teacher who cares about his students. Norm hope you read this. You are not easy but you are the one that made a difference for me in my life. You also got me mad and it worked Thanks
I took 2 courses with him. I never thought that I could get a good grade with him but found out that if I tried I could get over 85. Not an easy teacher but great and interesting. Very helpful.
Now that I have completed 1 university year, I realize how helpful and good Norm was. I worried about my grades but I know more because of him. Great teacher but heavy multiple choice questions.
Norm was direct with me and changed my study habits in his course which helped me in other courses. I felt like quitting but he gave me confidence. A great teacher.
I love his teaching style but not his tests. He is a great teacher who presents his classes in an intereasting way. The best teacher thjat I have had at Champlain.
He scared me at first but I realized that he did things for a reason. He is the teacher that I remember the most & that made a difference in my university education.
I hope you read this Norm. Found him tough at first but I realize now that I remember and use more of his ideas now that I am a teacher than any other teacher. He did a great job
He cared and was honest with me. He made me think about where I was going. He gave me what I deserved which I found hard at the beginning. A really nice guy who respects student
He does not give marks away but he is very fair. His multiple choice are very hard but make you think. if you study, you can do very well with him. Great & interesting teacher
You can do very well if you go to class and pay attention. Sociology is my highest marks and I feel good cuz he is not easy teacher and I work for them. He helps if you see him.
Hope you read this Norm. In university now and you are the only teacher that made a difference. You cared more about us than pleasing us by being easy. Thanks. How's your back?
Not easy but cared. He was there if you needed him. You can count on him to help. I still ask for his advice years after.
He made me think. The only course that I talked about with friends was his. I changed hopefully for the good. Thanks
He is awesome. He teaches using stories to keep our attention. Not an easy teacher but I am doing well by listening and taking good notes. He cares.
He says hi to every single person that comes in to his class and regards each student as different with a different set of needs.
He loves teaching. Review sessions during co-curric helped me to have things sink in. The best teahcer that I have
I begin my second year of university studies with a thank you to this teacher who showed me how to study and work on essays. Thanks
I remember what he taught me. He made me like school and I ama teacher because of him. Hope you read this Norm. Thanks
I had him this year. His energy kept me awake. He welcomes students into the class with a smile. Prepared for class so time passes fast. Thanks Norm
I found him very hard compared to my other teachers but learn the most from him. I figured him out in the second course and he is not too hard. Useful teacher
He is to the point when he gives examples. They make me learn and remember the material he teaches. Best teacher I have.
Student oriented. Listens when you have problems. He listend after class and gave me the spirit to live. He can be tough but do not be fooled by the exterior
I wish all my teachers were like him. I cannot miss a class. he keep me awake and gets my interest. You never know what he is going to say. A great teacher
He is teacher that gets you mad sometimes and always gets you thinking. The best that I have had in college.
He knows his stuff and presented it with examples that I could relate to. Not an easy teacher but fair. He looks like he likes teaching & cares.
Years after I could relate to what he taught me. The best teacher that I had.
He is interesting and teaches in a way that I could relate to. A great teacher who follows the rules he has for his class.
Most teachers cared about if I liked them but he cared about if I learned. He gave me confidence and showed me how to learn. He was my best teacher.
He teaches with interest and puts up a sweat. He grabs my attention for the whole class. Great teacher
Mr Petterson is the teacher you love to hate. Love his energy & student oriented teaching. Hate his tests. Great teacher
Mr P cared & failed me. He was the only one who spotted that I had problems reading & writing. Mr Gerber & Mr P helped to graduate. He cared.
Norm had so much energy. I had him for a few courses and his classes were one of the few that prepared me for university. Great teacher.
Norm wakes me up in the morning with his interesting and quick remarks. Classes go by fast. The best teacher I have this semester.
Norm changed my life. His classes gave me a reason to stay in school. His passion for teaching made me become a teacher too and be real like he was.
I learnt from him because he got my attention in class. He loves teaching and knows how to teach.
Norm is a teacher who tires to understand the variety of students that he has. He gives everyone a chance to prove what they can do. He rocks. Great teacher.
He is a teacher who is oriented to the students and can connect with them. He understood I had a learning problem and gave me extra time. A great teacher.
Norm is an excellent teacher who is the best at Champlain. A funny guy who teaches sociology using examples from his life or ours.
I enjoyed his classes and learned a lot from him. It shows that he likes teaching
Norm cares about his students and wants them to learn. Hard multiple choice make you think & are a challenge. I remember his teachings.
Norm makes classes interesting. He listens to students. The best teacher that I had.
I still remember what he taught me after 15 years. He gets his point across sometimes in a strange way. He loves teaching and it shows.
Classes go by fast since he is interesting and knows his stuff. Not the easiest teacher at Champlain but very fair. He seems to love teaching and is there if
Do your stuff, go to class and you get good grades. A nice guy who makes classes interesting.
Not an easy teacher but very helpful and wants you to pass as long as you make the effort. Funny guy in class.
