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 19th year here at Mathews before that I taught Pre-K for 7 years.
I have son Westin and daughter-in-law Kayla with a new baby named Adaline. I am very excited about being a first time grandma. I have a daughter Elisa and son -in- law Jason that live in Austin and have a son named Cole . I also have 5 grand- dogs.
When I am not teaching first grade I like to swim, garden, go to the movies and spend time with family and friends.
