A letter from Mrs. Nelson your Principal


Dear Briarcliff Bulldogs, 

My name is Mrs. Nelson and I am excited to become a Bulldog! I am the new principal at Briarcliff and I cannot wait to meet each and every one of you.


To tell you a little bit about myself, I am married to Mr. Nelson and have two daughters. Ava is going into third grade and Lucy is going into fifth grade. I love to coach soccer and Odyssey of the Mind. I also enjoy traveling to the beach and the mountains. 


I have taught all grades kindergarten through sixth grade, except for first. I have also been an Assistant Principal. In total, I have been working in schools for over 20 years. I would say school is my favorite place to be. I love to learn! 


I am excited to join your team at Briarcliff. I cannot wait to see you at work in your classroom. I know that you will be teaching me all about the character strengths you are working on from the Positivity Project. You will show me the Briarcliff way and what it looks like to be successful in class. 


I can’t wait to meet you and talk about all the great books you read over the break! 


I hope you enjoy the rest of your summer,


 Mrs. Nelson


Your Principal
