Hello all! My name is Jennifer Nelson and welcome to 4th grade! I would like to introduce myself as your child’s new teacher. I could not be more excited to be part of the Fall City community for another amazing school year! I was born and raised in Missoula MT, where I also earned my degree in Elementary Education from the University of Montana. Go Griz! Growing up in Montana I developed a strong admiration and love for the outdoors and our environment. I believe our connection to place and a strong sense of community are powerful tools for education.
Over the last 7 years I have spent time earning my degree, teaching, and working seasonally in wildland fire dispatch. Along with a background in fire, I also have a passion for sports and teamwork and have a number years of coaching experience in the dynamic sport of volleyball.
This year we will be working to develop positive relationships and a strong sense of community within our class. I hope to inspire, engage, and challenge your fourth grader as we all move through the learning process together.
I'm looking forward to a wonderful year with you and your child!
