Degrees and Certifications:

Mrs. Amy Nelson

I am so excited to be entering my 8th year in Kindergarten at FHS, my high school alma mater! Shortly after graduating from FHS in 2001, I attended the University of Montvallo, where I received my degree in Early Childhood/Elementary Education. I taught 1st grade for ten years in the Shelby County School System before coming home and joining the wolf pack once again! Now, I reside in Sylacauga with my husband, Kevin, and my daughter, Hannah Grace. In my spare time, I enjoy visiting the beach with my family, reading, and writing. I'm a published author, writing under the pen name, Amy Machelle. Be sure to follow me on Twitter @mrsamynelsonfhs for pictures and updates on what's going on in my classroom.
