    Welcome to our Classroom Website
    About Ms. Nelson

          Hello, my name is Katherine Nelson, this will be my 3rd year working in the Anoka-Hennepin district, teaching 6th and 7th grade art at CRMS, and 7th and 8th grade art at OVMS. I also co-run the after school Art Club at Coon Rapids Middle School. I received my Bachelors of Science in Art Education from the University of Wisconsin Stout, graduating magna cum laude on December 13th of 2014. My fiance and I live in Maple Grove Minnesota with our dog Emma. I enjoy riding motorcycles (as a passenger), doing photography in my spare time, traveling, working with animals, and just being outdoors as much as possible!

    Thank you for supporting your student's education! I am excited to work with your child and watch their growth. Together we can help your child achieve success!

    Formative Activities will not count as part of the total grade.

    We will use a "Holistic" Grading System

    2 (85%) - Developing

    1 (75%) - Basic

    "I" for incomplete (60%)

    No points lost for late work
