Hello My Name Is...

Jenefer Nelson

Hello,  my name is Jenefer Nelson and I am excited to be teaching Kindergarten at Grove Valley Elementary.  Kindergarten  is an exciting time for everyone and  is full of many “firsts”. The children will be faced with new challenges and accomplish many new things.  My goal is to ensure that all students achieve success and attain a love for learning. 

 I was born and raised in Lawton, Oklahoma.  I graduated from Eisenhower High School,  (Go Eagles!) and then went on to Cameron University. During my four years at Cameron, I studied both Elementary and Early Childhood Education.  After graduating from Cameron with a bachelor’s degree in Elementary Education and an endorsement in Early Childhood Education, I taught full-day kindergarten for 3 years at Woodland Hills Elementary in Lawton.  After marrying, my husband and I moved to Hawaii.  While living on the island of Oahu, I taught 4th graders at Kapolei Elementary School.  I feel so lucky to have been able to live in Hawaii but Oklahoma is home to me.  My husband, CJ, is now an Edmond Police Officer and I am enjoying my time teaching at Grove!  We have a beautiful little girl named Emily and a son named Connor.

We are going to have an exciting year of learning.
