Jamie Nelson is excited to be working with the awesome kids at ELA. She was born and raised in Chicagoland but moved west to finish high school. She graduated from Brigham Young University-Idaho with a degree in Elementary Education. Jamie has spent the past 13 years teaching the kids in the community of Kearns, Utah. She enjoyed teaching fourth grade for 10 years and then kindergarten for the past three. She is excited to be part of a different area of education by being an aide to the amazing second grade teachers at ELA.
As the mother of four kids, Jamie is often found playing legos, reading books, coloring, or at the park. When she has a minute to herself she enjoys reading, participating in theater and singing. She is excited for a great year!
