Miss Allison Nelson

Welcome to the Educational Life Skills Classroom!

I am very happy to be at Ellis Elementary and part of the Educational Life Skills team, but more importantly I am THRILLED to be your teacher! It’s going to be a fun year full of learning and new adventures and I can’t wait to see what this year has in store for us!

I graduated from the University of Wisconsin – Whitewater in 2011 with my Bachelors of Elementary Education and Special Education. I graduated in May of 2018 with my Masters of Special Education from Concorida University. This is my seventh year teaching, fifth year in Round Lake 116. I taught two years in the Plainfield School District in Plainfield, Illinois and hen decided to move to Round Lake at work at Ellis. 

In my free time, I like to spend time with my family and coach gymnastics. I keep myself very busy with all the activities that I enjoy doing!

You will receive a daily home note or a notification through Class Dojo. I will do my best to communicate various activities that we did throughout the day, behavior, along with information on their eating, bathrooming, and any personal supplies needed. It is very important to me that we regularly communicate with each other to better understand and meet the needs of your child. Please do not hesitate to contact me if you have any questions or concerns.

I consider it a great privilege and responsibility to be your child's teacher this year, and look forward to working with your family this school year!
