Dr. Stacy Nelson
I was born in Petersburg, Virginia but grew up in Polk County and received my education through Polk County Schools. I became an educator because of my love for children and my love for learning. My goal is to inspire students to always perform at their highest level and assist them in reaching their goals by helping them see the potential within themselves.
