I teach Computer Applications I/II/III & Desktop Publishing. I went to college in Wisconsin where I grew up and lived for 30 years. I have lived in Idaho the past 15 years. I have been married for 20 years to my awesome wife and have a son who is entering 4th grade this year.
I am also the Boys Varsity Basketball coach here at Mt. View. I have been coaching for 23 years and the head coach here at Mt. View the past 13 years.
My classroom is Room 211 so if you want to stop by and ask about a class I teach or talk hoops my door is always open.
COURSE BREAKDOWN for MR. NETTLETON
Computer Apps 1 - Introductory computer class that teaches the basic principles of MS-Word, Excel & Powerpoint (includes scanner & digital camera in project)
Computer Apps 2 - Advanced computer class that covers MS-Word, Excel & Access (database program)
Computer Apps 3 - College curriculum class that goes in greater depth of MS-Word, Excel & Access. This course is a CONCURRENT CREDIT course though Boise State University. Concurrent Credit is earning college credit while in high school. This year every student will receive FAST FORWARD money to pay for Concurrent Credit classes. The total is now $4100 per student--during high school. This is a great opportunity as a student could earn up to 63 credits while in high school. I also offer the MOS Exam for all my students. This Exam is recognized world wide by the business industry as a way to measure computer skills. Microsoft has created this exam to cover MS Word, Excel, Acces & PPT and a certificate is earned after passing the exam. All exams are free but if you were to take on your own outside of my class it would cost around $100. Most of my students take at least 3 exams per semester.
Desktop Publishing - This course covers MS-Publisher and Adobe Photoshop CSS 6-Cloud. We go into great depth learning about the Publisher program and cover the basics in Photoshop.
