TEACHING EXPERIENCE

I taught first grade for one year in 2009. I then taught second grade at an inner city school for two years. In August 2013 I began teaching second grade in South Central Pennsylvania at a new school district. Second Grade is my passion and I'm so thankful that I've always been able to teach such a wonderful grade level! I have lots of experience with students that perform above grade level and also below grade level. I have a special education minor and have worked with students with learning disabilities, hearing impaired, speech impaired, emotional disabilities, autism, and ADHD. I am dedicated to learning as much as I can so that I have all the knowledge I need to teach. I am continually researching new and exciting ways to provide knowledge to my little ones, so that they can love learning just as I do.

MY TEACHING STYLE

I would consider my teaching style to be very hands on and visual. I like my students to be able to see what they are learning, touch what they are learning, and hear what they are learning. Many of the activities and products that I use in my classroom include all of these elements.

HONORS/AWARDS/SHINING TEACHER MOMENT

I was awarded Dean's List and National Honors Society Awards throughout my entire college career. As a teacher, I received an award for Integrating Hispanic Culture into my curriculum, as well as Integrating Multicultural Education into my teaching. I will continue to strive to be the best teacher I can be for my students and I feel that having my students succeed is the greatest honor of all.

MY OWN EDUCATIONAL HISTORY

In 2017 I completed my Masters of Education at Wilson College in Chambersburg Pa. I completed action research and wrote a thesis on art integration in the classroom, so be on the lookout for some new packets that contain art integration ideas for your classroom. In 2006-2010 I attended West Chester University in West Chester, Pa for my Bachelor of Science. I majored in elementary education and minored in special education. I took part in the Honors College at West Chester University, because of my high academic achievements. I was also part of a co-ed fraternity, Phi Sigma Pi, which is an Honors Fraternity that focuses on academic achievement and reaching out to the community through service.

ADDITIONAL BIOGRAPHICAL INFORMATION

In my spare time I play tennis, run, read, blog, and take care of my little boy, Andrew. Family is extremely important to me and I love surrounding myself with people that I care the most about. In the future, I hope to write and illustrate my own children's books. Reading is my true love and I have always painted as a hobby. I have always thought with these two skills combined, that I could create a book series for children that would be appreciated by fellow educators. If you have any questions for me, please contact me at kellyhnelson3@gmail.com Thanks! Kelly Nelson
