Welcome to NSBHS Game & Simulation

Dear Parents and Students,

This is my 3rd year teaching at NSBHS and to that I bring 27 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.

Although this was a very short summer, I spent a good deal of it preparing for this school year. I attended two 3-day conferences focused on CTE classes and met with the other Game & Sim teachers in the county to discuss a revamp of our entire program. I am very excited about the changes we have made to the program – aligning the curriculum more closely to the state standards and incorporating new and exciting challenges for students. I am also excited about changes being discussed and made to our certification exams.

Please feel free to explore my website for helpful links for the various classes I am teaching as well as the assignment schedule expectations. Please understand that the schedule posted is never set in stone and is subject to change on a daily basis. Although we have a fairly specific curriculum to cover, I will try to keep my teaching pace set to what is best for my students at all times.

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!

Sincerely,

Shirley White

Hello Chemistry Cudas!

My name is Jeremy Brock and I teach AP and Pre-AP Chemistry here at NSBHS.

I attended the University of Florida before graduating from the University of Central Florida with a degree in Chemistry Education. My professional goal is to have every student become an informed citizen who can think scientifically to solve problems and create a more enlightened society. My annual goal is to prepare every AP Chemistry student to pass the AP Chemistry exam in May.

I'm very good at Table Tennis (two 1st-place trophies), fairly skilled at chess, soccer is my favorite sport (all-county goalkeeper), and I love to read science, philosophy, and theology. My favorite author is C.S. Lewis and I highly recommend you read "The Screwtape Letters" and "The Abolition of Man." My favorite passage of scripture is the book of Ecclesiastes.

I love teaching, I love learning, and I love sharing my passion for science with my students!

¡Hola!

Bienvenidos a mi página web y a mis clases de Español. 

Daily assignments, homework, resources, upcoming tests and quizzes can be found on my activeclassroom site.  Click on the [website] on this site and it will take you to activeclassroom.  Then in the Search Name box type Gellermann and click [find class] it will take you to my classes.

Learning Spanish will enable you to communicate with over 400,000,000 people worldwide.  It will connect you to the 23% of Floridians that are Hispanic.  It will help you develop intercultural competency which is high up on the list of employability skills.  It will open doors, create opportunities and add adventure to your life.  I love learning and teaching the Spanish language and feel very blessed to have the opportunity to teach at New Smyrna Beach High School.

I grew up in Columbus, Nebraska and earned my B.A. degree in Religion, Sociology and Human Services Administration from Hastings College.  I then joined the Peace Corps and served as a fisheries volunteer in Guatemala. I first learned Spanish through total immersion.

 Returning to the states, I worked several years in the mental health field and then became a U.S.A. Peace Corps Fellow teaching full-time on the Navajo Reservation while earning my Master’s Degree in Secondary Education from the University of New Mexico.  I took many additional Spanish classes to become certified and also passed the test for bi-lingual endorsement in Arizona.  I taught for over ten years in New Mexico and Arizona.  I have traveled to Spain, Cuba, and Mexico.

This is my tenth year teaching Spanish at New Smyrna Beach High.  This year I am teaching Spanish 2, 3, 4 and AP.  I am very proud that we had a 100% passing rate for AP Spanish the past two years and hope we can significantly build the program in the coming years.

I really want students to identify with a personal reason or motivation to learn the language, and I want them to learn to the point that they can use it to enrich their lives.  To achieve this requires taking risks and going outside of the comfort zone at times.  It necessitates personal motivation and using the language beyond the classroom.  I strive to create a classroom environment with high expectations and where risk taking is allowed.  Learning a language takes hard work and making mistakes.  It is imperative to have a growth mind-set.
