Ms. Karen Nielsen
I was born and raised in small town Iowa. I earned my B.A. degree from Simpson College in Indianola, Iowa. This is my 20th year here at Mathews before that I taught Pre-K for 7 years.
I have a son Westin and daughter-in-law Kayla and they have a little girl Adaline that is two years old. I have a daughter Elisa and son-in-law Jason that live in Austin with their one year old
Son Cole. I am very excited to have two grandchildren.
When I am not teaching first grade I like to swim, garden, go to the movies and spend time with family and friends.
