My name is Lisa Nielsen. I have always enjoyed working with children and knew at a young age I wanted to be a teacher.   I went to college at Winona State University in Winona, Minnesota.  I received my bachelor’s degree in elementary education with a minor in early childhood and a kindergarten endorsement.  I student taught in preschool, kindergarten, and first grade classrooms.  I graduated in 1994 and taught for a year as a long term substitute in an Early Childhood Family Education Program in Fairmont, Minnesota.  This involved teaching sessions for children birth to preschool age

A year later, I moved to Lincoln when I was hired part time as a preschool teacher at Norwood Park Elementary.  I taught there for one year and then started as a part time kindergarten teacher at Morley Elementary in 1996.  I eventually was hired full time when I taught Reading Recovery.  I spent seven years teaching morning kindergarten and Reading Recovery in the afternoons.  Kindergarten at Morley grew and I moved to teaching morning and afternoon kindergarten for several years.  Finally, we shifted to full day kindergarten, which I still enjoy teaching at Morley today.
