Nelson Dear 1st Graders and Families,

Hi! My name is Mrs. Nelson and I teach 1st grade at Somerset Elementary. I have been at Somerset since 2006.  I feel so fortunate to teach at such an amazing school. We have the best students, staff and parents who all work together to make great things happen!  I strongly believe in creating a positive, supportive classroom community of learners. Students are encouraged to become responsible, productive members of our classroom and their learning. The students work hard and are proud of what they accomplish!

In addition to teaching at Somerset, I have taught at Garlough Elementary and in Elbow Lake, Minnesota and Dallas, Texas.  I received my Bachelors Degree in Elementary Education from the University of Minnesota in 1991 and my Master's Degree in Curriculum and Instruction from Hamline University in 1998.  Some of my interests include: watching and playing sports, gardening, reading and spending time with my family and friends. 

Please contact me if you have any questions or concerns. I am so excited for another great year!
