Welcome to Mrs. Nelsen's Web Page!
My name is Mrs. DeAnna Nelsen. This is my eleventh year teaching at Frontier Elementary School. I taught second grade for six years have taught first grade for the last 4 years. I grew up in Ames, Iowa and moved to Colorado Springs in 2001. I love exploring Colorado and checking out the beautiful landscape! I have always loved working with children. Prior to teaching, I worked in Early Childhood Education for several years. My husband and I have two girls at home; Lucy, 8 and Hazel, 5. We had an exciting summer spending time with our family. Our Basset Hound, Annie kept us busy too.
My goal this year is to meet the individual needs of each child. I will dedicate myself to your children this year and work towards instilling a true love for learning. My classroom environment will be one of inquiry, action, participation, hard work and hands-on involvement. The emphasis will be on trying your best and taking risks. I want to instill an "I can do it!" attitude in all of them. First grade is an exciting time of adventure in the world of learning. You will be amazed at just how much your child will learn! Keep in mind that each child progresses at his or her own rate, acquiring skills as they are developmentally ready. Working together, we can ensure that every child feels welcomed and receives the best education possible. I truly feel that communication and teamwork between parents and the teacher is vital. I will do my best to keep you informed and involved in your child's classroom life. Please feel free to contact me at any time if you have any questions or concerns. My email address is: firstname.lastname@example.org. You can also contact me through class DOJO.
