Mrs. Neilson

Hello!  I am so excited for our 2020-2021 school year!  We will have a great year! 

I have been calling Scappoose and Warren home since 2007.  Prior to this I was a first grade teacher in the Hillsboro and David Dougas school districts for a combined 6 years.  After moving to Scappoose I worked as a substitute teacher until 2013 when I accapted a full time third grade teachig position.  I atteded Eastern Oregon University, where I met my husband, and we both entered the field of education.  We both love being part of the Scappoose School family.  

My husband and I are raising two sons, Brandon and Matthew, who are students in the Scappoose School District.  Brandon is a 8th grader at SMS and Matthew is a 6th grader at OPE.  Both boys are active in sports so you can ususally find me after school at a practice, a game, or Fred Meyer!   I love seeing current and former students at events in town with my own sons.  

Some of my passions in the classroom are teaching art, science, reading and building relationships with students.  I recognize that your child spends more time in my classroom than anywhere else during their day and I strive to make sure that while they are in my care they are loved, heard, able to be their own person, and learn how to love learning!

Some of my passions oustide of the classroom are working on my hobby farm, running, cooking, looking at big trees (my sons would roll their eyes at this one), fishing, and just being outdoors with my family.  

Thank-you for welcoming me into your lives this year and I look forward to partnering with you to give your child an excellent 3rd grade year!
