M.A., World Arts – Graduate Institute of Applied Linguistics

Since 2015, Professor Nelson teaches a variety of subjects within the humanities, mostly at the middle school level. Initially, she taught part-time while she worked on her degree in World Arts which included a thesis focusing on the West African epic of Sunjata. Her academic interests have been heavily influenced by her international background – an early childhood spent in the Democratic Republic of Congo and eleven years in France. Thus, when not teaching languages, she loves to learn them. She spent many years serving among international students and continues to seek opportunities to reach out, including partnering with various agencies as a translator or proof-reader for ministry-related materials. She loves spending time with her family, traveling, learning West African drumming, and reading quietly.
