Welcome Tyler Nelson (New Principle - 2016)

Welcome New Principle Tyler Nelson

As of this school year, Tyler Nelson will be taking over as our Elementary and Middle School Principle. A native of Mondovi, Wisconsin, Mr. Nelson draws a lot of comparisons between Thorp and his hometown. “I see a great amount of community pride, as well as a tremendous amount of support from our students and their education.”

Tyler Nelson graduated from Mondovi High School in 2002, and went on to college at the University of Wisconsin - Eau Claire. He graduated from Eau Claire in 2007, with a middle childhood through early adolescence degree, and a license to teach grades 1-8. “I truly have enjoyed my years in education,” Tyler says, “and I have had some wonderful opportunities. I taught second and third grade in the Chippewa Falls Area Unified School District, and from there I had the opportunity to return to my hometown where I taught fourth and fifth grade. It was these opportunities that drove me to continue my education in Educational Leadership through Viterbo University. I have had great experiences in education, and I look forward to continuing this in our district.”

Mr. Nelson first decided he wanted to teach after working as a youth football coach while he was in college. “It was so rewarding to see the day-to-day growth while working with children, and that is when I decided to change my major to Education.”

Outside of school, Mr. Nelson likes to spend time with his wife, Ashley, a dental hygienist in Bloomer, and their two-year-old daugher, Ava. He also enjoys hunting, golf, the lake, and all of Wisconsin sports teams, especially the Packers, Badgers, and Brewers. On top of that, he works as an official for high school sports.

When asked if he had anything to say to the people of Thorp, Tyler responded as follows: “I want to take this opportunity to thank everyone who I have had the opportunity to meet up to this point, including community members, and our school staff. Everyone has been so kind and welcoming. This has made the transition go so well and I am really excited to get to work with our staff and this community - thank you!”
