My name is Shawn Nelson. I am delighted to be teaching 4th grade! It is such and exciting age and I love the 4th grade curriculum! I am proud to say that this is my 18th+ year of teaching. I am lucky enough to have spent my entire teaching career at Spreckels. I have one son who attended Spreckels as well as Standley and UC High. If you stop by my classroom you might even see him volunteering. Even though he is now grown, he still takes time to come in and help his mom out! I just love classroom volunteers! Feel free to stop by anytime to give a helping hand! Just make sure you sign in at the office first.
If I am not in my classroom you might find me jogging on the beach or playing kickball. I am also very fond of our San Diego sports teams. You may see me at a Charger or Padres game. I also enjoy reading and traveling! I hope this tells you a little bit about me, and I look forward to an exciting and productive year of learning!
