I began working at Nelson in February 2013 where I worked as a long-term substitute in First Grade. Then, in the 2013-2014 school year, I was fortunate to continue working at Nelson as a Resource Assistant where I worked with students from Kindergarten to Sixth Grade. In 2014, I became entirely grateful to continue being a part of the Nelson family and began my first, official year at Nelson teaching Fifth Grade.
Now, I have gained experience in teaching 5th and 4th grade at Nelson, and I'm beyond excited to now be teaching 3rd Grade.
For me, teaching is about the connections that are made with students. Meaning, teaching is often those unforgettable "ah-ha" moments where I know I have made a difference in a child's life. These moments include a variety of students who all come from different backgrounds, have different personalities and needs, and they all fill a different part of my heart. Memorable educational moments are what drives my passion to be an educator, mentor, and role model to all children.
I am beyond excited to begin working with you and your children for a fun and successful school year!
