Welcome to the Counseling Corner: ALL are welcome!
My Name is Annette Nelson and I am proud to be your Chelsea Heights School Counselor. This is my second year at Chelsea Heights and I am excited to jump in for another great year. While this is my 15th year in the St. Paul Public Schools District, this is only my 2nd year as a Licsenced School Counselor after graduating for the University of Wisconsin River Falls in Spring of 2016 with a Masters of Science - School Counseling. Previously, I have worked at several High School throughout the district, providing a resource to students when planning their Career and College goals. I look forward to bringing those experiences with me as we prepare your students to be lifelong learners, with a Career and College focus for ALL students.
When I am not at Chelsea Heights, I spend my time with my loving husband of 9 years and our two daughters, Tia (8) and Ali (6). We love to travel, swim, go to parks and simply just play. One of my favorite memories is this past summer when we took our first plane trip to New York City. While we missed subways, got lost in Central Park and even hopped in the wrong Lyft, we were to laugh and make the best of it. It was an experience none of us will ever forget and we stayed positive and connected throughout. My daughters will attend Bryn Mawr Elementary School as a 1st and 3rd grader, which is located close to our North Minneapolis home and has been a great fit for us for these past 3 years.
At Chelsea Heights I view my role at Chelsea Heights as a resource not only for all students, but also the families and the staff, to be a piece of the puzzle to help your students succeed academically at Chelsea Heights.
