I had her back in '91. She was a terrific teacher of writing, and I owe a lot to her. She was very difficult, but for the right reasons.
Ms. Neilson was a great english teacher and i would take her class all over again if i had the chance. She taught me a lot and i miss her dearly.She Rocks!
She improved my writing by quite a bit. i will never again read a novel without seeing symbolism. What is reality.
We miss you Ms. Neilson! You're class taught me a lot, not just in english, but about myself. Thanks for being there!!!
She's not only my grandmother but a wonderful woman in and outside of teaching. She has helped me with my writing in many ways, & now my work is being published
I only wish she was still teaching so my sister could get her. She may have been ridiculously hard but you LEARNED to write... no choice in the matter
shes awesome but very hard and sometimes seems picky and mean.
She definitely helped me in some areas, but I didn't really like her outside of her teaching, no offense to those who do looove her.
I loved Mrs. Neilson...I am now attending UCSB and I still carry on a lot of what she taught me my junior year of high school. One of the best at STHS
An excellent teacher, and a great person. Not satisfied with your grade? Mrs. Neilson wasn't satisfied with your work. Shame about her retirement.
I LOVE MS NEILSON the person who said she thinks she's god or something with powers needs to learn how to spell with you probably failed her class & blame her
She's a tough teacher, but you come out of her English class being 100 times better at writing than you were when you walked in.
Good teacher. Only ST teacher who actually prepares you for college.
