SHE IS THE BEST ENGLISH TEACHER the others at TJ cannot teach. nelson prepares you for everything like SATs and life english. she's funny and rocks but she's retiring.i'll miss her;;;
don't like the books she makes us read. i dont see things the way literature-literate ppl do so i find class discussions boring. She gets tougher on grading during 3rd quarter. she's a cool person tho
She's cool, talks to the class about basically anything. You spend a lot of time doing discussions where you can just sit back and relax. Also, a great crew coach! Too bad she's leaving this year.
Incredible and caring teacher, she is decently difficult, but you will do well on the AP. She is understanding as long as you talk to her, and is lax with her seniors cause she trusts them.
Mrs. Nelson truely cares about her students. She gets to know everyone, and you get to know her. It really helps to figure out exactly what she wants in the begining, then the rest of the year is cake
Mrs. Nelson is one of my favorite teachers I've ever had. She is very understanding of situations and is always willing to help. Also, she really does know how to teach and write; I have limproved drastically since the year began and learned so much. She may be a little tough to some, but if you stay focused she isn't very difficult. Rubrics and clear guidelines for each assignment are provided. Plus, she's very funny and keeps the class interesting. If she wasn't leaving, I would take AP
Don't be fooled by how well she markets her assignments. Her class is average TJ English. She expects that students have already learned the basics of English from other teachers and does not teach much at all.
One of the nicest, funniest, and most knowledgeable teachers you'll ever meet. I love Mrs. Nelson! I had her for IBET English and I now have her for AP Lang. Mrs. Nelson really KNOWS HER STUFF, pretty much best teacher you can get for anything English related...or just TJ related. She helps with interviews, resumes, thesis papers, etcetc. Thanks Mrs. Nelson! We'll miss you when you're gone.
fantastic teacher. hilarious as well. an amazing class.
Very smart, honest, and personable. Great teacher! Best english teacher ever.
MRS NELSON ROX! She is really cool! I hope I have her in future years!
Kinda strict... still, -very- awesome. That's all I can say. I don't even know why she is, but she's just so -awesome-!
her classes are a good balance to mcfaden's sometimes tedious lectures. helps you with writing and grammar. Athena teaches the odyssey like no other

She set me up for four years of success at TJ, even though I didn't get an A in her class. Good teacher who cares abotu students.
Really nice and a good teacher; She seemed to take off points on every little mistake she could find in my papers :(. Learned a lot though.

I learned a lot from Mrs. Nelson's English 9; very smart and fosters a strong learning environment.
cool teacher, tests are hard, but gives lots of binary assignments

She's a great teacher, and her class is lots of fun.
