Mrs. Nelsen 

I am proud to say that I am a Council Rock graduate who has had first- hand experience with the top quality of education that this district offers.  During my years at Council Rock, I attended Churchville Elementary, Holland Elementary, Richboro Middle School, and Council Rock High School (when there was only ONE high schoolJ).  While attending Council Rock, I participated in varsity field hockey and softball, and I never missed a football game (my father was the head coach at the time!).  I earned a Bachelor of Science Degree in Elementary Education with an emphasis on mathematics from Kutztown University and a Master of Education Degree in Reading from Arcadia University.  Most of my years in the teaching profession have been spent in sixth grade here at Richboro Elementary; however, I have also had the opportunity to teach fourth and fifth grade.


On a more personal note, I am married and have two sons. My husband, Todd, and I have been married for 31 years.   Both of my sons played football and lacrosse while attending Central Bucks East High School.  Zach, my oldest, graduated from West Chester University and is now stationed at Fort Bragg in North Carolina with the 82nd Airborne.  Logan, my second son, is entering his second year of law school in Boston. Whenever we are together, we enjoy playing pinochle and a variety of other card or board games. Additionally, I spend my time volunteering at my church, visiting family, exercising, and attending extra-curricular events of my students!
