Degrees and Certifications:

Ms. Shelley Nelson


      My name is Ms. Nelson and I am the ELA (Reading & Writing) and Social Studies teacher this year.  I have been teaching at Desert Mountain for 8 years, and have taught the whole time in 5th grade as well as teaching ELA.  I have 2 kids - my son is 18 and is a freshman in college this year, and is going to school for Nursing and my daughter is 3 ½ years old.  I am a huge animal lover and have many different critters at my house.  In my free time, I like to spend time with my family, bake and go hiking.  I love going to Disneyland whenever I have a chance and I absolutely love sharks.  One last fun fact about me is that I am a Seattle Seahawks fan and also a Green Bay Packers fan. I am looking forward to meeting everyone at Twilight Tours/Meet the Teacher Night or on the 1st day of school.  I am very excited, this is going to be a great year !!
