    Hello. My name is Denice Nelson and  I started my teaching career in Thief River Falls in 1991.  I currently teach second grade at Challenger. Some people may remember that I have taught 5th grade, 4th grade, kindergarten and finally 2nd grade! My family and I live outside of Thief River Falls on a farm. We farm wheat, soybeans and alfalfa hay. We keep pretty busy with the farm.  Our oldest daughter works at Northland College in town. Our son farms with us and lives just down the road from our farm.  Our youngest daughter works in TRF and is working on a Business degree!  We are enjoying our children being adults and all the joys that brings! One of the biggest JOYS for me this past year was becoming a grandma!  It is the best!! If you need to reach me it is BEST to email me at my school address. The best time to call me this year at school is between 10:15-10:45 or 11:45-12:25  M-Fridays (before or after school works too). I hope your child has their best year ever!  Like the minions say...keep calm and eat a BANANA!!
