Katie Nelson was selected by American Leadership Academy as its January Teacher of the Month.

This is Nelson’s fourth year teaching at ALA. She teaches seventh and eighth grade science, along with Biology 1010, a concurrent enrollment college class.

In 1999, Nelson received a degree in psychology from Brigham Young University.

She went on to receive another degree in biology education from Utah Valley University in 2016.

She absolutely loves the Fine Arts program the school offers, and especially watching her own children perform in the many productions. Nelson also enjoys the four-day school week and how it pushes her to use her classroom time more effectively.

When not working, she enjoys golfing and hiking with her husband of 19 years and their three boys.

All attend and are a part of the ALA Fine Arts. Her main joy, however, is watching her boys perform. (Serve Daily submission.)
