Welcome to Ms. Nelson's Class

  • Mrs. Nelson

    Welcome to 5th Grade!

    Hello Families and Students,  

    My name is Tamra Nelson and I truly love being a member of the Jefferson family.  I team teach with Mr. Nelson and we have three wonderful children that all attend Everett Public Schools. 
    Over the past 19 years I've had the privilege of working with remarkable students, families, and staff that have inspired my work. I look forward to building new relationships with all of you as we embark on a new adventure this year!  I am very excited to have your child in my virtual classrom with high hopes of teaching them in person later this year. I look forward to a year full of learning, growth, and discovery for all of us! I believe that all learning should be relevant, rigorous and engaging, and that each child be able to work at his/her own personal best. My role in the classroom is to motivate, encourage and educate so that your child can achieve high standards and contribute to our classroom, school and global community.  

    Thank You,

    Thinking about high school and beyond starts now. Here is my educational journey...

    Jackson Elementary (Career goals: marine biologist, teacher, fashion designer)
    Evergreen Middle School (Career goals: architect, interior designer)
    Everett High School (Career goals: undecided...I was stuck so I started community college)
    Everett Community College (Accounting Program-Earned my AA and then changed paths)
    Western Washington University (BA in Education)
          *Internship at Jefferson Elementary
    Antioch University (MA in Education)
    2002-2013: 4th and 5th Grade Teacher at Silver Lake Elementary (Science Specialist)
    2013-2017: 4th and 5th Grade Teacher at Forest View Elementary (ELA Block Teacher) 
    2017-Current: 5th Grade ELA Block Teacher at Jefferson Elementary (ELA Block Teacher)
    My educational journey continues. Dreams never stop and trying something new always gets me excited! My wish for my students is that they realize that all things are possible. The first step is to inspire them to believe in themselves. Then it takes patience, a growth mindset, support and hard work to achieve those dreams.  I'm excited to help your child as they start thinking about their own educational journey. It's never to early to start dreaming.  ~Mrs. Nelson
