A little bit about Mrs. Nelson: 

Mrs. Nelson has a husband named Josh and has a 5th grader, 3rd grader, and a Kindergartener at Sartell. She has a German shorthair pointer named Blue & a little kitty named Willow. In her spare time she likes to read, do yoga, drink coffee, and sleep.

Q: When did you start teaching at Sartell?

A: “9 years ago, so in 2009.”

Q: What brought you to Sartell?

A: “I had been commuting and had two little kids and driving around drove me crazy. I wanted to teach where my kids would go to school.”

Q: Do you live in Sartell or do you commute?

A: “I live in St. Joe, but it is about 10 minutes from there to Sartell.”

Q: Where did you live before moving to Sartell?

A: “My hometown is St. James in Minnesota, just south of Mankato, and I moved to St. Cloud for college and have stayed here ever since.”

Q: What is your favorite grade/class to teach and why?

A: “I love journalism! I like to talk about current events and I like the technical writing of journalism.”

Q: Do you have any funny/cool stories about where/what you did before teaching here?

A: “When I was in college I worked for a program at St. Ben’s called Upward Bound. Every summer there was a fun six-week program and every other year they went on a trip. We went to Colorado and I don’t like flying at all. I ended up sitting next to Mrs. Bang’s husband (he taught for the summer Upward Bound program too), and I was so scared the whole time.  He asked me about every ten minutes if I was ok.”

Q: Did you teach anywhere else before Sartell?

A: “I taught 8th grade at Melrose for six years and 10th grade at Monticello for two years.”

Q: What is your favorite part about teaching here and why?

A: “I love that I’ve been here long enough that I have been to get to know families from teaching multiple siblings and being invested in my students’ lives. I also love my department. We get along and we hang out outside of school too. They are so fun!”
