As many of you know, Ms. Nelson is a sixth grade math teacher. If you have had her as a teacher, you know how cool she is, and how she’s really nice and helpful. She’s been a teacher for 12 years, and she loved every year. The reason Ms. Nelson chose to be a math teacher is because it was her favorite subject in school. She also wanted to help kids become less afraid of math; and wants to help them see that they can become better at math, even if they weren’t good at it at first. She even stated that “The best part about my job is watching my students grow over the course of a year because it makes me happy as a teacher.”
Ms. Nelson’s favorite thing about Benicia Middle school are the incredible students, staff and community. If you didn’t know, Ms. Nelson has two wonderful children that she loves to do arts and crafts with. One of Ms. Nelson’s goals is trying to to become better at managing and saving her money. This is a great goal, and it also math related!
