Mrs. Nelson

My name is Stephanie Nelson and I am pleased to be your child’s Kindergarten teacher this year at Lamar- Milledge Elementary School. I’m so excited to be entering my 10th  year of teaching! I taught Pre-K for one year and this will be my 9th year teaching Kindergarten. I received my Bachelor’s degree in Early Childhood Education, Master’s degree in Curriculum & Instruction and Specialist degree in Curriculum & Instruction from Augusta University.

My Educational Philosophy

I am always trying to help students become independent learners. Each of the students has the potential to bring something unique and special to the world. Teaching is an important and honorable occupation that demands commitment. There is learning, healing, laughter, sharing and love every day in my classroom. I have the opportunity to impact student lives in a positive way.  Our classroom is a place where students feel important, respected, cared for and believed in. I am a teacher who makes it possible for her students to reach their full potential by asking questions, learning from their mistakes, giving and receiving feedback, and trying their best. In our classroom, real world problems are solved so that each student can become a life-long learner. Together, we celebrate each other’s success and inspire each other to be the best.
