Mrs. Anita Nelson
I am the School Psychologist for Free State High School. I was a special education teacher for 7 years prior to becoming a school psychologist, and I am in my 8th year as a school psychologist. My main role as a school psychologist is to work with students, families, and staff to ensure students have the most appropriate education available to them. I work with school staff to determine students’ current levels in many different areas including academics, behavior, emotional health, and other skills needed to be successful in school. Outside of school I am involved in my three daughters' 4-H and school activities and love to read, bake, and quilt.
