About Mrs. Nelson

Hello and Hola! I am Mrs. Nelson and I am so excited to be one of the counselors here at Branchburg Central Middle School. If you are on the Champions, Olympians, or the Force, I will be your counselor! I graduated from Rutgers University Graduate School of Education with a master’s degree in Counseling Psychology. Prior to coming to BCMS, I was a high school counselor so I love talking about future college plans and career interests. In my free time I love spending time with my family. Please stop by my office to say hello, I love getting to know my students and their parents.
