Welcome to NSBHS Game & Simulation
Dear Parents and Students,
This is my 5th year teaching at NSBHS and to that I bring 29 years of teaching experience from a wide variety of disciplines. I started my teaching career as a Special Education Resource teacher for hearing impaired students in Joliet, Illinois. Traveling between 4 schools every day simply was not a good fit for me and so, after receiving my Master’s degree in Mathematics, I taught high school math at Prairie Central High School in central Illinois. While at PCHS I also coached cheerleaders and taught college math part time at a couple local junior colleges. In the spring of 2000 I started a second Master’s degree program in Applied Computer Science at Illinois State University. In January of 2001 I began teaching for the School of Information Technology at ISU and continued to teach a variety of technology and programming classes (including C, C++, Java, web development, and ethics) for the next 11 years. When my husband retired after 33 years at Caterpillar, we moved to Deltona. I then taught part time for Daytona Beach State College (Intermediate Algebra) and Seminole State College (various technology classes) until I decided to return to teaching high school in 2014. After one year at Pine Ridge High School (teaching mathematics) I joined the CUDA family. While I have always enjoyed teaching mathematics, computer science and programming is truly where my passion lies.
If you have any questions or concerns do not hesitate to contact me. I typically check email before school, during my prep (2nd period), and after school. I do not check email or answer the phone during class periods. You may call my extension (38570) before or after school or you may leave a message with the school secretary and I will return your call as soon as possible. Please know that I care deeply about my students’ success and that I will work hard to help all students achieve the highest level of success possible!
I’m looking forward to a great year!
