Ms. Sarah Nielsen



Welcome to Mrs. Nielsen's First Grade Flamingo Class! 

My name is Sarah Nielsen, and I am thrilled to be your child's teacher! Your child will learn and grow so much throughout this school year. I can't wait to see how much we accomplish together!

This is my 8th year teaching. I have taught both Kindergarten and First Grade. After 4 amazing years in Kindergarten here at PSRES, I am very excited to be back in First Grade! In 2015, I graduated from the University of North Carolina-Wilmington with a Bachelor of Arts degree in Elementary Education, a concentration in Behavioral Studies, and a minor in Psychology. When I am not teaching, I enjoy spending time with my husband, Dylan, going to the beach, reading, teaching at Pure Barre Highland Creek, and Clemson football- Go Tigers! It is a gift to be a part of the PSRES family, and I am looking forward to another amazing year. 

We are going to have an excellent year! I truly feel blessed to be your child's teacher, and can't wait for our First Grade adventure. Please do not hesitate to contact me with any questions. The best way to reach me is by e-mail (sarah.nielsen@cabarrus.k12.nc.us), or by phone (704) 260-6250.
