Mrs. Neilson

Hello! I am happy to be part of the Grant Watts family!

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.  I attended 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.   

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!  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!
