Degrees and Certifications:

Miss Kelli Nelson


My name is Miss Kelli Nelson. This is my second year of teaching but my first year in the Waynesville School District. I am from Iberia and currently live there. I was previously employed as a special education teacher at Iberia R-V School district. I taught Transitions at the high school level and Life Skills at the elementary level. I have a B.S. in Cross Categorical K-12 Special Education from the University of Central Missouri. I am passionate about teaching children with special needs the skills they need to function in all areas of their lives. 

I have one sister and am an aunt to a sweet baby nephew, Huxley and mom to a Mini Austrailian Shepard pup, Gus. My hobbies include traveling, boating with friends on the Lake of the Ozarks, going to the movies, and spending time with my family. I am a fan of San Francisco Giants baseball, but I really just love watching baseball in general. My favorite subject in school was always Social Studies/History and I still love to read and watch historical documentaries and dramas. My favorite color is orange and my favorite food is Mexican. 

I look forward to teaching your child and being a part of the Wood Elementary family! :) We're going to have a great year!
