Mrs. Nelson grew up in the Kansas City area. She attended MIdland Adventist School from grades 2-10, and completed her last two years of high school at Enterprise Adventist Acacdemy. She then earned her Bachelor of Science degree in Elementary education at Union College.

Her first teaching job was teaching 2nd grade in 1992 at Midland, and she continued to teach in the elementary level until her oldest child Brennan was born. After that, she became a stay-at-home mom for the next 21 years, raising five children and homeschooling some of them off and on through the years. Last year, Mrs. Nelson began substitute teaching for MAA, and spent this past summer taking classes to renew her teaching certificate..

You'd be surprised to know that...

Mrs. Nelson has had more cats in her life than children.


Mrs. Nelson has five children: Brennan (21 years), Brycen (18 years), BriAnna (15 years), Blake (13 years), Brooke (10 years). Brennan currently is in college, while her other children all attend Midland.
