Mrs. Shelley Horn
Teaches: Academic English 11 and Honors English 11 Years at GC: 13 Years teaching: I have taught for 23 years. I was a banker/corporate trainer for Old National Bank for seven years before I re-entered teaching in 2004. Degrees: Bachelor of Science, Ball State University
I teach at Guerin Catholic because:
. . . I allowed the Holy Spirit to bring me here. Through some trials in my life, God showed me that this was where He needed me to land.
When did you realize you wanted to become a teacher and why?
From the time I was a small child, I played school. I truly saw my road to teaching when I was a sophomore at Ball State. A life situation and my own junior English teacher provided the inspiration for me to become a teacher.
Advice to freshman:
My advice for incoming freshmen is to allow Jesus in your life. This new chapter in life as a high school student will be rewarding and challenging. However, your ability and desire to see and succeed in these times will be less stressful and attainable with Jesus as your co-pilot in life!
This after school class, which stands for electrical, computer, and mechanical engineering, is instructed by Adam Suchko, president of his business, Engineering Concepts Unlimited. This is an after-school class that meets for 2 hours every week. This no-credit class introduces students to SolidWorks, blueprint parts, binary, flowcharting, state machines, programming, and coding.
In the programming and coding lessons, students learn about Java, including syntax, variable types, and compiling and running code. Currently, the ECM room houses a student-designed mini “candy factory”, a candy dispenser that shows what the manufacturing process is like. Starburst candies are released from an escapement feed, travel on a short conveyor belt, fall into a sorter that has an arm and a basket, and are randomly sent down 1 of 2 chutes for guests to take. This required students to model all of the parts in SolidWorks, build a frame that let us attach the different parts to it, wire a breadboard, and program our machine by writing code in a state machine.
