Miss Evangeline Nelson

My name is Evangeline Nelson and I am a 6th and 7th grade science teacher at Highland Middle School.  This is my first year teaching at Highland and my second year teaching overall.  I grew up in Charlotte, NC and graduated with a degree in Education from Appalachian State University- go 'Neers. I am a self-proclaimed "enthusiasm engineer" and am passionate about renewing the wonder of science through play. Check out my STEAM website for more information about my lessons! As a educator, I am passionately committed to building a caring classroom community with social-emotional curriculum, instilling a love of learning through academic play, and boosting student growth through goal setting. When I am not in the classroom, you may find me hiking on a backcountry trail, testing out new recipes in the kitchen or participating in citizen science by testing water on the Poudre River.
