Mrs. Nelson


Growing up in Santa Barbara, California I always enjoyed the beach and mountains.  Moved north to Chico, CA and graduated from Chico State with a Bachelors in Arts Education.  Looking for a forever home I came upon Benicia, where I worked at Benicia High School teaching Art from 2001-2015.  I moved into Administration for a few years at Benicia Middle School (2015-18), but really missed teaching.  Married with two boys, I enjoy going to their sporting events and spending time as a family with all the the Bay Area has to offer.  

I am excited to work at John Swett this school year, teaching Art and Ceramics, as well as growing our Student Activities, as the ASB Director.  I look forward to getting to know the students and community of Crockett.
