About Mrs. Nelson
"Education is not filling a pail but the lighting of a fire."   ~William Butler Yeats

        I began my Massachusetts teaching career in 1992 in the Malden Public Schools. In 1999 I accepted a position in Salem, where I taught at the Federal Street School prior to transferring to Witchcraft Heights (my home away from home) in the fall of 2001.
My experience includes positions as:
  • a ‘typical’ elementary classroom teacher (grades 2 and 4)
  • a K – 2 Inclusion Specialist
  • a classroom teacher for a multiage 4th/5th grade
  • a classroom teacher for students with learning disabilities in a substantially separate setting
  • a 'resource room' teacher for students with learning disabilities

My Qualifications:
Master of Education in Curriculum and Instruction
Bachelor of Science in Education - Moderate Special Needs
Bachelor of Science in Education - Elementary

What you can expect from me:
        I will treat your child with respect and work toward meeting his/her individual needs. This includes demanding the best from him/her. I will be honest with you regarding your child's strengths and weaknesses. I will meet with you to discuss your child's progress throughout the year. You are welcome to stop by before school, email or write a note to set up a meeting. If calling, please do so before or after regular school hours, so as not to interrupt the classroom.

What I expect from your child:
        I expect each student to be a positive, productive class member who works to the best of his/her ability. This includes being an active participant in his/her own learning and treating others with respect.
