Welcome to Mr. Nelson's Home Page !
Welcome parents and students to the website for Room 102 here at Walker Elementary. I am excited to be the teacher and case manager for the students who attend Room 102. Walker has been my educational "home" since 2002. My career spans three decades, grade levels from kindergarten to adult,and five school districts, at seven different schools. While currently a special education teacher for students with moderate/severe challenges, past positions have included general education classrooms, full inclusion settings, and adult transitions. My education includes a BA from Augustana College in Sioux Falls, SD, a Credential Specialist degree from San Diego State University, and a Masters in Educational Administration from Concordia University, Irvine.
When not teaching, you'll find me spending time with my family. I have a wonderful wife, three daughters, a son, a daughter-in-law, a grandson, and a Jack Russel Terrier. Enjoying mountains, lakes, beaches, books, exercising, music, and traveling keep me busy during breaks and vacations.
Please feel free to visit the various pages/links attached to this website. If you are a parent, it is my hope that you find the information helpful as we work together towards meeting our goals set each year. If you are a student, I hope that you will gain some insight towards the expectations, needs, and important issues we face here in Room 102.
Welcome to Our World!
Won't You Come on In?
