About Me

Experience Summary

After 16 years of high school classroom teaching experience in Missouri, I decided to pursue my doctorate in education at UK. I'm certified in secondary math grades 7-12 in both Missouri and Kentucky and have 4 years of college level teaching as well. While finishing my doctorate, I'm currently teaching the secondary Practicum for prospective math, science, social studies, and language arts teachers. D dot Nelson at uky dot edu for more info.

Teaching Style

My high school students have said that I'm completely focused on them, communicate very effectively and add humor whenever possible. You can check my ratings from students at www.ratemyteachers.com -- search for Marquette High School in Chesterfield, Missouri.

My Hobbies

Reading is my favorite hobby, but I also write (have a published medieval fantasy novel), draw, and play Wizard101. My absolute favorite hobby, though, is playing with my three children and two dogs.

Other Comments

I'm getting my doctorate so I can help math teacher be more effective. Students are my focus; helping them gain an appreciation for mathematics is my primary goal. Students do much better when they have success and like the subject. It is my goal to provide both for students. d dot nelson at uky dot edu for more info.
