Hello and welcome to Mrs. Nelson’s class!  I hope everyone had a wonderful summer!  My family and I went to the beach and spent time together.  We had a great summer, but I am always ready to get back into the swing of things at school.

As an alumni of Eden Gardens, I am excited to be back home for my eighth year of teaching in Caddo Parish!  I received my Bachelor’s Degree in Elementary Education from Louisiana Tech University and my Master’s Degree in Educational Leadership from Northwestern State University.  My husband’s name is Michael and we have two little boys.  Cade is three years old and Cooper is eight months old.  It’s hard to believe how fast they are growing, and I know you feel the same way about yours!

I am excited to be teaching my favorite subject in fifth grade…math!  My goal as a teacher is to foster a love of learning new things!  I will try as much as possible to incorporate creative assignments, hands-on activities, and technology into my lessons.  I also strive to make my classroom a place where students feel comfortable expressing their ideas and unique personalities.  We can all learn from each other!

Please do not hesitate to contact me at any time regarding your child’s progress or with any questions you may have.  The easiest way to get in touch is through email- bhnelson@caddoschools.org.  I check my email daily and will always try to get back to you as soon as possible.

I am looking forward to working with you and your child this year.   Let’s work together to make this the best fifth grade year!
