Welcome to Lisa J. Mails, my name is Nicole Nelson! I am so excited to be back at Lisa J. Mails, where I was fortunate enough to complete my student teaching. I feel truly blessed to do a job that I love and am passionate about—especially at a school that heavily emphasizes the arts. I can assure you that my number one goal is to make sure your child feels valued and welcomed in my classroom. I am looking forward to getting to know you all more!
I have my BA in Elementary Education, a CA Multiple Subjects Credential, and AA in Social & Behavioral Sciences and Arts, Humanities, & Communications. I was born in Hershey, Pennsylvania and raised in Southeast Georgia. I spent my childhood studying ballet with different companies on the East Coast, and I know the positive impact the arts have on developing one’s character and discipline. I now live with my husband in Menifee, where we just bought our first house together. I enjoy spending my time with family and close friends, traveling, and searching high and low for gluten and dairy free treats! You can normally find me with a book in my hand or going for a long walk around the neighborhood.
I invite you to partner with me to help create this to be your child’s best year yet! I am committed to providing a safe and positive learning environment for your child, and to be a dedicated member of the Lisa J. Mails team.
