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 21th year here at Mathews before that I taught Pre-K for 7 years.


I have a son Westin and daughter-in-law Kayla in Oak Point, TX. They have a little girl Adaline that is three.  I have a daughter Elisa and son-in-law Jason that live in Nashville, TN, they have a two year old named Cole and a new baby on the way in September.

  I am very excited to have a new grand child soon.


When I am not teaching first grade I like to swim, garden, go to the movies and spend time with family and friends.
