Mrs. Lucy Nelson

My name is Lucy Nelson and I am one of the 5th grade teachers here at Stetson Elementary. This is my 10th year teaching in the classroom, however I have been in and out of the classroom most of my adult life! I was a student, volunteer, and a guest teacher for a number of years.  I have my MA in English Language Learning, a BA in Elementary Education and Special Education, as well as a BA in Psychology. 

I am originally from South Carolina, but the USAF moved my family to Colorado Springs in 2008. My husband has since retired from the AF and teaches high school in District 49. We have 3 children and 3 fur babies. I enjoy spending time with my family, my fur babies and with my friends as much as possible. I also love traveling/sightseeing, hiking, reading a good book, listening to country music, going to concerts, watching movies and college football, listening to clean comedy, and appreciating a nice cup of coffee. 

I am excited about this school year and look forward to partnering with parents to help their child be successful this school year!
