    Ms. Pavel 

    I would like to take this opportunity to introduce myself to you.   My name is Jennifer Pavel, and I am delighted to be your child's first grade teacher!
    I earned my bachelor's degree in elementary education from the University of Illinois at Urbana-Champaign. I hold a master's degree in literacy education from Northeastern Illinois University, as well as a master's degree in learning design and leadership from the University of Illinois at Urbana-Champaign. This will be my 9th year at Nelson School, and I am so happy to be part of the Nelson School community!  
    One of my priorities is to inspire all students to embrace the endless possibilities of learning.  I believe that all students have the potential to learn and do their best; therefore, it is my goal to help students grow in their social, emotional, and academic abilities by giving them the tools and resources that they need to succeed.  I have a passion for learning, and I am excited to have the opportunity to share my love for learning with each and every one of my students.  

    In my free time I enjoy ice skating, traveling, and spending time with family and friends.
    I am enthusiastic about this school year, and I am truly looking forward to working with your child! Please feel free to contact me at any time.  I value a strong parent-teacher relationship and know that together, as a team, we will establish a strong foundation for your child's education. 

    Kind regards, 
    Ms. Jennifer Pavel
