Mr. Nelson has been talking about numbers for the past 26 years. He came to this school to teach math, and has never wanted to leave. This year he is only teaching 7th grade math but has taught 8th and 9th grade math too. He really enjoys arithmetic!
Math isn't the only thing he is good at. He also is quite knowledgeable when it comes to art and science. Before he taught math here at Spanish Fork Jr. High, he was an Art History teacher and a Science teacher. He says that he enjoyed these other subjects, but was glad he got a chance to work with numbers here at SFJH.
Some of Mr. Nelson’s students include Bryler Jensen, Burgundy Wooder, and Amie Ainge. They really enjoy being in his class. All of his students really enjoy his humorous teaching style. Bryler claims he learns a lot in Mr. Nelson’s class and wouldn’t want to be in anywhere else. Amie and Burgundy enjoy it when Mr. Nelson realizes he’s made a mistake. He says, “Oh Blaust!” and corrects it as quickly as possible. They are very excited that Mr. Nelson was chosen to be their teachers, and so are many other students.
