Mr. Nilsen


I have been teaching at Carey School for 9 years now, and I hope to be here for many more. I transitioned this year from teaching language development at all levels at Carey School to teaching 5th and 6th grade math, science and health. I earned my bachelor's degree in social studies education with a minor in Spanish education. From Brigham Young University Idaho and later earned a master's degree in teaching English to speakers of other languages (TESOL) from Grand Canyon University. I am a husband and a father of 4. I love spending my free time with my family jumping on the trampoline, working in the yard, fishing and doing many other activities.
