Mrs. Susie Nelson
My name is Susie Nelson, and I am thrilled to be your child's 2nd grade teacher. I have always had a love for teaching. It is so rewarding to see the light bulb moment when a student learns a new skill. I have found that all students have an enthusiasm for learning, which makes this job very rewarding. I have been teaching for 20 years and have had the opportunity to teach in 5 different states. I am the mother of 35 year old triplets. I remarried seven years ago to a wonderful man. I gained a stepson and stepdaughter. They too have a family; so I am excited to say that I have 8 grandchildren from ages 4 to 23 years old. I have an Aussie-Doodle named Lily and a cat named Nora. I enjoy growing flowers, reading and exercising.
Second grade is a time for growth and independence. Students really take off with their reading and a great deal of emphasis is put on reading comprehension. Please remember that in order to improve at any skill it takes PRACTICE! This is true for reading. Please read with your child daily. READ! READ! READ!
Thanks for sharing your child with me. I know that we are going to have a great year!
