    Please allow me to introduce myself. My name is Thomas Norwood and I'm a CTE Business and Marketing teacher at Reagan High School in Forsyth County located in North Carolina, USA.  I currently teach Marketing and Sports & Entertainment Marketing I & II.  Last semester I taught Principles of Business & Finance and Business Law along with Marketing.  I was born in Bristol, CT and have a Bachelor of Science from Salem International University in Salem, WVA.  I have also completed comprehensive coursework at The University of San Diego and San Diego State University. I have worked in sales and marketing for several Fortune 500 companies including Fruit of the Loom, Inc. and PGI Polymer Group, Inc. My position with Fruit of the Loom Inc. was Regional Sales Manager based out of Los Angeles CA.  My territory was all of California and all states east to and including Texas.  My position with PGI Polymer Group, Inc. was Group Product Manager based out of Mooresville, NC and the corporate office in Charleston, SC.  PGI is the 3rd largest nonwoven company in the world.  My territorial responsibilities included the entire United States.  In addition, I interfaced with our European, Mexican, and Canadian divisions traveling internationally to our plants and customers throughout those countries.  My most recent position in business was Vice President Sales for The Royal Carolina Corporation located in Greensboro, NC.  RCC specializes in rotary screen print and the finishing of traditional and nonwoven fabrics.  My territorial responsibilities included the entire United States and Canada.
    I participated in a series of International Business Seminars throughout Europe and the Far East meeting with American and foreign corporations including Proctor and Gamble, BMW, Rolex, IMB, Digital, General Motors, Squibb, Cassa Di Risparmi, Nestle S.A., Krupp, WDR West German Radio & Television, Heineken, Algemene Bank Netherland, Amsterdam Stock exchange, and ABN Bank. The Asian countries included China, Japan, Taiwan, and Hong Kong. The European tour included The Netherlands, Germany, Austria, France, Switzerland, Italy, and Greece. The seminars were conducted by top level management executives that included an in-depth look at the management styles of American based companies and their foreign counterparts. Combinations of panel discussions and relevant product presentations were followed by lectures regarding the practical workings of corporations flourishing in a Global Economy.
    After living in Los Angeles, CA for sixteen years, my wife and I relocated to St. Louis, MO. We currently live in Lewisville, NC and enjoy spending time with family and friends. In addition to traveling, I enjoy tennis, outdoor water sports, singing, playing the guitar and piano.   Please visit my WIKI site.  I have listed the link to the site below.  I hope you enjoy the WIKI and find the links both educational and enjoyable.  I utilize this site to engage student learning and motivate our students as they learn about our global economy.  The interactive nature of Glogster and Podcasting are positive ways to increase student participation while introducing new technologies into my classroom setting.  Animoto and Blogger have been utilized in my classes with much success and continue to captivate and intrigue students in the educational process. These technologies add creativity and originality to otherwise mundane lessons. Planning with Animoto may be used to introduce content in an exciting way with music and templates filled with inspiration.
