Mrs. Neilsen


All about Mrs. Neilsen:

I grew up in the Boston area, so I have a bit of an accent. The children love to remind me that I forgot to say an "r"sound. I live in Westfield with my husband and three children. My husband is a firefighter in town. He is also involved in the school's fire safety program. It's fun to watch the children wrap their head around why "Firefighter Neilsen" and I have the same name.

I have been teaching kindergarten since 2008.  I have my Bachelor Degree from Westfield State College and my Master's Degree from Cambridge College.

Outside of school I love spending time with my family.  I have three very active
 teenage children, Jake, Mikey and Katie.  All three keep my husband and I very busy with their sports and other extra curricular activities.  

My personal message:

Never say the words "I can't."
