Tory Norman, CPA
Business and Accounting Teacher
I am so excited to be working along side the students and staff at Provo High School! Up until 2017, I was practicing as a Certified Public Accountant and working as a business and technology consultant for small businesses in Utah Valley and around the world. Now, as an educator, I strive to bring those real-world experiences into the classroom through interactive, hands-on activities based on the projects and problems from real businesses. My hope is that these experiences will allow students to get a feel for what a career in these fields may be like and how the skills they are learning in class can be applied to real life.
