Welcome to the world of literature and learning, where grammar sings, pictures speak, and books fly, where Shakespeare speaks Klingon and arguing leads to understanding. I love the English language. Reading, writing, interpreting and analyzing literature, and drawing connections between multiple media formats, both fiction and nonfiction are all educational passions of mine.The summer of 2017 I published my first book, Elements Combine, through self-publishing under the name S.E. Nielsen. It is available through Amazon.com as an e-book and print version at the link under the book cover. One can also contact and buy a book directly through me.I am very happy to be a part of the magnificent faculty here at Burley High School. I have been teaching here in Burley since 2003, beginning at Burley Junior High School. I graduated from Idaho State University with my Undergraduate. In addition, I attained a Masters in ESL from Boise State University. I am fluent in three languages: English, Portuguese, and Spanish. I am married and have three children.I am passionate about teaching and try to show that passion through my instruction and interaction with students, peers, and parents. I hope to help any who come to my class engender a love for critical thinking, writing, and reading. Please feel free to contact me with any questions or requests for help. I am in the library doing after school homework support on Tuesdays and Wednesdays of each week. To the side you will find a link to Google Classroom where students will find announcements and assignments necessary for class.
