I am Kristi Nelson and I am Abernathy I.S.D.'s Dyslexia Specialist and Abernathy Elementary's Reading Interventionist... I was raised on a small family farm near Kelton, Texas. I attended Kelton I.S.D. from 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 11th year at Abernathy Elementary. Since being at Abernathy I have taught first grade for 5 years and I am starting my 6th year as the Dyslexia Specialist and Reading Interventionist. I have completed my Training with Scottish Rite of West Texas and upon completion I am now a Certified Academic Language Therapist (CALT). My husband is a farmer and we have two children. My son will be starting his Senior year at Abernathy High School. My daughter is attending West Texas State University In Canyon, Texas. She is pursuing a degree in Ag Business. My son is Attending South Plains Lubbock and pursuing Welding. We gained a daughter-in-law as of September 8, 2019. Amanda Nelson is pursuing a degree in Ag Business/Ag Science at Texas Tech. They live in Wilson, Texas. Helping students that struggle in school is extremely close to my heart and I strive to help them be the best that they can be.
I will do Whatever It Takes to help your child have a great school year.
