Jr. High Math with Mrs. Nelson

Hello Warrior Students & Families!

My name is Mrs. Nelson.

Jr. High Math with Mrs. Nelson

I am excited to be joining our amazing Jr. High team this year! I have had the wonderful pleasure of teaching as a long-term substitute at Kootenai Jr./Sr. High for many years and I truly LOVE our students, staff, and community. This year, with the upcoming completion of my credential, I am blessed to be teaching full-time.

I will be teaching Jr. High Math, Keyboarding, and 12th Grade Personal Finance this year. I also serve as the Freshmen Class (Class of 2025) advisor.

I took the long road to get here. After various degrees in Political Science, Psychology, and Law, followed by years of business administration, management, communications, and customer service, I found my way back to teaching and came to understand that teaching Jr. High and Sr. High students is definitely my calling and passion. 

Like many of our students, I wrestled with mathematics in my early years. I know what it is like to struggle with equations and formulas. But what I have come to learn, and love, is that math is black and white. There is only one right answer. And I thoroughly enjoy watching our students "get it." When they know the formula or the tricks, they also get excited about math. Math doesn't come easy for everyone, so I am here to HELP and point our students in the right direction.

I believe that each one of my students is fully capable of doing great things and meeting their goals!

Outside of the classroom, I enjoy spending time with my family--my husband Ron, and our four kids at home--Ronnie, Sadie Rose, Dani, and Kaycee. I love to read, write, organize, and spend time outside hiking, exploring, kayaking, swimming, bicycling, hunting, snowmobiling, and fishing on our boat. We are active in Real Life Ministries in Post Falls and love our community. And since my students always ask... my favorite foods are nachos, lasagna, and anything Indian, Thai, Vietnamese, or Korean and my favorite candies are Mike & Ikes or Dark Chocolate anything.

Please feel free to contact me if you have any questions about the curriculum, upcoming tests, or the assignments your students have brought home.
