Grade 5, Room 9
Meet The Teacher
Hello families! My name is Kristen Nelson and I am so excited to be teaching with Ms. Bitting this year in Room 9.
Growing up, I attended Arlington Central School District. Upon graduating, I went on to receive my bachelor's degree in Elementary Education at SUNY Cortland and my master's degree in Special Education and Literacy Education at SUNY New Paltz. After earning my master's degree, I began my teaching career in New York City by teaching 3rd and 4th/5th grade. From there, I went on to teach sixth grade at Fishkill Plains during the '19-'20 school year and am looking forward to returning to fifth grade! This year will mark my fourth year teaching.
In my free time I enjoy hiking with my husband and my dog Mishka! I also enjoy reading and spending time with family and friends.
