Mrs. Kimberly Nelson

Hi! My name is Kim Nelson. I am married and have a son, a daughter and 3 grandsons. My family is my joy and I'm very glad to say we are very close and get to spend lots of time together. I have been a teacher for over 20 years and I love what I do! Outside of loving my students, I love being outside, working in my yard planting flowers and pulling pesky weeds. Sitting on the back porch in rain or shine, warm weather or cold is one of my favorite things to do. Reading is my weakness so another of my favorite things to do is curl up in a chair with a great book and a steaming cup of hot chocolate for as long as I can. I love a good challenge and several years ago my daughter and her husband tricked me into visiting a CrossFit gym for a workout. I instantly fell in love and I've been working out ever since. Because our recent pandemic closed the gym for a time, I now workout in my garage with a few weights and a jump rope. I'd love to learn to do double-unders. That isn't a skill I've been able to master yet, but I'm still trying!

I'm excited to begin a new year and look forward to my new students! Of course, we will improve our reading and math skills, but we'll also work on asking questions, demonstrating kindness, and becoming leaders in both small and big ways. We will work on learning how to research topics on the internet, create PowerPoint presentations, and write essays. We will practice encouraging one another, take pride when our whole class masters a skill and use our failures and mistakes as opportunities to learn. I'm ready for our new year so let's get to it!
