Kris Nelson

MCEE Master Teacher

Kris Nelson teaches at Byron High School in Byron, MN, a small community just west of Rochester. She's been teaching since 2008 with economics as her main focus since 2010. As a teacher in small high school, she also teaches College Now Political Science, Human Geography, and U.S. History. A non-traditional route was how she came into teaching with a B.A. from the U of MN - Twin Cities in history and political science and then a Master's in Education from Winona State University. Kris is currently working toward a second Master's Degree in Political Science. The best thing about teaching economics is that every kid enters the classroom at the same level. No one has any idea what economics is really about so they enter with a relatively open mind! When Kris isn't teaching or reading The Economist she can be found in the pilates/yoga studio, planning her next travel adventure, or outside playing with her mini Aussie.
