Mr. Nielsen

Hello, I'm Mr. Nielsen!

I graduated from District 5 in 2009 and I graduated with an M.A. in Teaching from the University of South Carolina in 2018. I have a background in Psychology, History, and the Social Sciences. I believe in instilling curiosity and a growth mindset in all of my students, regardless if they enjoy the content that I teach. I also believe that everybody should strive to have the Irmo Yellow Jacket mentality: I Respect Myself and Others.
