My Top 3 Priorities

  • Active Student Engagement- Students can achieve amazing things in and out of the classroom when they are actively engaged in their own learning/educational goals. I would like to help ensure that what is being taught in classrooms is best for all.
  • Accessible Education for ALL Students (especially Special Education and English Learners)- All students should be able to access education tailored to best suit their needs. All students should be able to learn to the best of their abilities.
  • Student and Staff Safety- The most important thing for our students and staff is to help them get back into the classroom safely. As a current classroom teacher, I understand the importance of maintaining relationships with all students and parents.

Thank you for taking the time to read this.

My name is Arthur Nelson. I am 30 years old and currently in my sixth year teaching 8th grade English and History at Parkview Middle School in Armona, California. In my time at Parkview Middle School, I also have taught English Language Development, Journalism (Morning Video Announcements and School Newspaper), and Intervention for Reading and Math. I have also coached track since starting teaching at Parkview (except last year, sadly), and I began coaching basketball last school year. I have also filled in coaching football and wrestling in past years.

Allyse, my wife of six years, teaches 4th grade at Armona Elementary School and is in her fourth year. Working and developing as an educator and seeing Allyse's impact on her students has been one of the great joys of my life.

My experience and knowledge of the current situation in our children's education is what drives me to represent our area for Lemoore Union Elementary School Board.

I believe that active student engagement is important to keeping students engaged in school by being involved in the creation of their own learning and educational goals.

I believe that ALL students deserve accessible education, especially students who recieve special education services or English language learners. Sspecialized and targeted intervention needs to be given to students who need Tier 2 and 3 instruction to best address their needs immediately, so they can work as close to their own goals or grade level as possible.

I believe that student and staff safety is incredibly important as well. It is important for our students to get back into the classroom safely so they can stay there, especially if that is the method of instruction that best suits them. Distance learning has shown us the importance of a strong connection between the family and the teacher, and I believe this should be a focus continuiing forward in order to keep everybody working for the best interest of the children.

Thank you for your interest, and I hope I can count on your vote!
