Mrs. Nelson

Hello!  My name is Leslie Nelson and I am a first grade teacher.  This is my 24th year of teaching.  I have taught kindergarten, first grade and second grade.  I was also a Reading Coach for five years.  All of my teaching experience has been in Pelham schools.

I graduated from Auburn University and received my Masters of Early Childhood Education at UAB.  I love the learning, exploration and growth that take place in the first years of school.  I am particularly excited to help young children navigate their first years of reading and math.

My husband, Pat, and I live here in Pelham.  We have two children.  Our son, Jake, is 20 years old and our daughter, Shelby, is 27.  Both of our children attended schools in Pelham.  Jake is currently attending the University of Alabama.  Our daughter, Shelby, is a graduate of the University of Alabama and is married to a pilot in the Air Force.  They currently live in Louisiana.  Shelby is attending nursing school.
