Ms. Allison Nelson
Hello! My name is Allison Nelson. I have been teaching for 19 years and the last nine years have been at Cartersville Primary School as a first grade teacher. I earned a Bachelors Degree in Elementary Education from Loyola University and a Masters Degree in Reading from Loyola Univerisity. I recently earned a Reading Endorsement for my teaching certificate. I love teaching. It is one of the most interesting jobs a person can have. Students come in to my classroom at the beginning of school year and I get to help them learn and grow over the course of the year. The growth that occurs is a combination of parental support, student effort and quality instruction. One of the most important relationships is between parents and teacher--an open line of communication is the key to sucess.
I have three children currently in the Cartersville City Schools. Davis is a senior at Cartersville High School, Elizabeth is in eighth grade at Cartersville Middle School, and William is in fifth grade at Cartersville Elementary School. As a parent, I understand the importance of the parent/teacher relationship, so I strive to have open dialogue with parents of my students. I look forward to a wonderful year in First Grade!
