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."
