About me:

My name is Mr. Nelson.  I grew up in Hastings, MN and graduated from Hastings High School in 2001.  I then went on to college at Minnesota State University, Mankato and graduated with a BS in Social Studies Education.  While attending MSU, Mankato, I met my wife, Laura.  She is a 1st grade teacher at Jordan Elementary in Jordan, MN and also is a certified Yoga-Kids instructor.  We have 2 children.  Elyse is 7 years old and will be starting 2nd grade at Chatfield Elementary this fall.  She loves to read, create various crafts with whatever she can find around the house, and play with her American Girl Doll, Ella.  Micah is 3 years old and will be attending daycare and ECFE classes.  He loves diggers, semis (or big rigs as he calls them), and anything construction related or with wheels.

2016-2017 will be my 10th year at Belle Plaine Junior/Senior High School!  I love teaching here and being a part of the community.  I will be teaching four sections of 8th Grade World Geography and one section of 7th Grade United States History.  I am also the 8th grade Boys Basketball coach and the Junior High Student Council advisor.
