Mr. Boone Nelson
Hello and welcome to 4th Grade! My name is Boone Nelson and I am excited to be your teacher, or the teacher of your child this year!
I grew up in Helena and graduated from Capital High School in 1996. I then attended Montana State University before receiving my Bachelors in Elementary Education from Carroll College. Upon graduating from Carroll I began my teaching career in Phoenix, where I also attended the University of Phoenix and received my Masters Degree in Curriculum Instruction. After a few short years in Arizona my family and I returned to the wonderful state of Montana. My wife, Maggie and I were married in 2002 and together we have two children who attend school in Hamilton; Brendan is a sophomore and Madalyn is a 7th grader.
I absolutely love helping children learn and love teaching all subjects. This will be my second year teaching at Daly Elementary and my 13th year in education. Prior to moving to Hamilton I spent the majority of my teaching career in Florence and Colstrip Montana.
I am very passionate about working with kids outside of the classroom and am also a coach. Currently, I am an Assistant Coach for the Hamilton High School Football and Basketball teams. Before joing the Broncs coaching staff, I spent three years as the Head Boys Basketball Coach in Florence-Carlton, coached basketball in Colstrip for five seasons, and was a member of their football staff.
Outside of the classroom I am an avid outdoorsman. I enjoy many types of hunting, fish both liesurely and competitively, enjoy camping, site seeing and exploring the Montana Wilderness with my family.
I am exciting for another great year in the Hamilton School District and am looking forward to getting to know you this coming school year!
