I am Kristi Nelson and I am Abernathy Elementary's Dyslexia Specialist and Reading Interventionist. I was raised on a small family farm near Kelton, Texas. I attended Kelton I.S.D. starting in Kindergarten through 12th grade. I graduated from Dallas Baptist University. I taught at Andrews Middle School and Cotton Center Elementary before coming to Abernathy. I am starting my 9th year at Abernathy Elementary. Since being at Abernathy I have taught first grade for 5 years and I am starting my 4th year as the Dyslexia Specialist and reading interventionist. I am in my 2nd year of training to become a Scottish Rite Dyslexia Therapist. My husband is a farmer and we have two children. My son will be starting his Junior year at Abernathy High School. My daughter will be attending South Plains College as a Sophomore. Helping students that struggle in school is extremely close to my heart.
I will do Whatever It Takes to help your child have a great school year.
