• Welcome to 6th grade!

         My name is Kristen Nelson and I am one of the 6th grade Special Education teachers this year.  I co-teach with Shannon Horton (Reading), Kelly Sheahan (Math), Andrea Humphreys (S.S./Science), and Glen Jensen (Writing).

         While this is my first year 'on the Plains,' it is my third year teaching.  I have previously taught 3rd, 4th, and 5th grade in New York City.  Growing up I attended Arlington schools, so I am happy to return to the community I grew up in to teach.

         In my free time I enjoy hiking, photography, reading, and spending time with my family (who live locally).

    I am excited to get to know your child this year and to work as a team to support them!
