Hello to all. My name is Norman E. Raison IV. I have been teaching, coaching, managing, or have taken part in some form of education my entire life. My formal degree is in Marketing and I have a Master's in International Business Management. For undergrad, I attended Indiana University of Pennsylvania (IUP). I completed my graduate studies at Universidad de Autonoma de Barcelona (UAB).
I have lived in several foreign countries, including Barcelona, Spain; Belgrade, Serbia; and Bogota, Colombia, for over eight years in total accumulated time. My international experiences have proven to be essential, life-altering circumstances that have taught me invaluable life lessons. While living overseas, I completed my master's, obtained an English teaching certificate, authored five books, began several businesses, and most importantly, learned how to adapt to different cultures.
When I am in the States, I work with the Community College of Philadelphia teaching English in addition to Writing Skills. Before my teaching career, I was a general manager, entrepreneur, and had a fitness career. Although my life has been full, I dislike listing personal attributes or spouting off accolades. The world is filled with well-established, credible individuals. However, when we discuss the ability to teach or educate others, I do not believe there is anyone more capable of accomplishing that task greater than I. I did not always want to be a professor. I fell into the position by chance. Nevertheless, once I began teaching, I knew it was my passion.
This is my first attempt at teaching on an online platform. I much prefer face-to-face interaction. However, the future is most certainly over the internet. Also, I can reach a global audience to share my ideas and knowledge with.
I am very passionate and dedicated. I expect my students to be as well. My overall goal is to help my students not just learn, but to view things from different perspectives. Most importantly, I expect my students to think critically. I do not care about right or wrong. How well you memorize numbers and statistics does not matter to me. I care about how well you are able to think. As a professional educator, my job is NOT to prepare you for a career. My job, my responsibility is to prepare you for life.
In closing, there are thousands of teachers, professors, and people willing to give you their opinion. If you want a teacher with 30 years experience, choose someone else. If you want a teacher who is going to talk at you for hours, choose someone else. If you want to listen to someone's resume, choose someone else. But, if you want a teacher who you can relate to, who cares about your development, who will grow alongside you; choose me.
