Casey “Gub” Nelson has been selected by his peers to be the teacher of the month at SFJHS. Coach Gub is an outstanding teacher; he is respected by both his co-workers and students. He is also a great role model. Mrs. Binks stated, “Gub has gone the extra mile to help our new teacher Monte Morgan get things going for his classes. He is always prepared with clear written instructions on the board and he has great classroom control”.
Gub graduated from BYU where he also played baseball. While he was there, he was named to the All-Mountain West Conference. He still continues to help coach baseball at BYU.
He loves the Chicago Cubs, Mexican food and Batman. Most people don’t know that he loves to cook and is pretty creative with it. His favorite quote is, “Don’t be a slacker!” He wants his students to learn through performing physical activity.
Congratulations Gub! SFJHS appreciates all that you do for our students.
