Hello Everyone! My name is Emily Nelson and this is my first year teaching and I am VERY excited! I previously worked as a social worker for seven years in Tucson, Arizona and Dallas, Texas. I decided to make the leap to education this year because I have a strong passion to work with children and watch them grow and succeed. I have a Bachelor's Degree from Texas A&M-Commerce in Child and Family Studies and I am currently working on my Master's Degree from Texas A&M-Commerce in Curriculum and Instruction.
I have been married for 10 years to Rodney and together we have two boys, Emmett, 2 years and Axel, 3 months. Our family is excited to integrate into the community and get to know everyone better.
I am looking forward to meeting all of my new Students and Parents!
