    About Mr. Norty
    I have been teaching and coaching in Paw Paw for over twenty years. I thoroughly enjoy being in the gym. I am also the ski/snowboard advisor for the middle school. I also coached the mens' and womens' teams in cross country in the fall in Portage for Portage Central High School, and track and field teams in the spring for many years.

    In my spare time I enjoying running, skiing, reading, biking, camping and spending time with my family either working in our yard or traveling. 

    I have a great family which includes my wife who is a chemist for a small start up company in Kalamazoo, three children. My daughter is  19 years old and going to Hope College this year. She enjoys swimming, running and school. One of my sons is 16 years old and going into 11th grade involved in Cross Country/Track, soccer and loves school and fishing.  My other son is 13 years old and is entering 7th grade enjoys all sports especially soccer and cant wait for school to start. He also enjoys outdoors activities but is very fond of collecting bugs and reptiles and keeping them in our garage.

    In my Physical Education classes my students can expect to be challenged to their fullest potential and to have nightly homework by continuing to stay active at home doing pushups, sit ups, playing outside for 60 minutes daily.  Within my marking periods my students will have at least one test, numerous quizzes, and at least one writing assignment. I pride myself on making my students excel in doing their best daily, having fun, being respectful to others and self, along just plain exploring new areas of exercise.

    Communication 

    Communication is key! Email is an excellent and eficient soursce of communication.  I check my messages often throughout the day, up til 2:30. The best times to contact me are during my planning hour 12:20 to 1:00 or before school.
