Mrs. Nelson

Current Position: Physical Education and Intervention and Acceleration Support


Teaching Education and History: I received my Physical Education teaching credential from San Jose State University. I have taught/coached from elementary to college level for 40 years. This is my 15th year at Donner Trail.


Teaching Passion: I did not have a PE class until I was in college so I jumped in with both feet and have not stopped jumping yet...I want all children to have the opportunity to experience Physical Education. All children should get to learn how to Play Hard, Play Fair and Play Safe.


Outside Interests: My outside interests revolve around family, friends and fun. My fun usually involves playing or spectating but a good book is great too!


If I could have a super power: If I could have a super power it would be to heal.
