Mrs. Jocelyn Bauer-Nelson

Special Education Teacher

Hi, my name is Jocelyn Bauer-Nelson (Most know me as Mrs. Nelson) and I am a Special Education teacher at Ball High School. I have been teaching in Texas since 1989 and have taken a one year sabbatical to work for the Space Shuttle Program. I was also a stay-at-home mom for two years. My goal as a teacher is to help students realize their potential to do and be their best by working collaboratively with the student, their parents or caregivers, their teachers, and counselors. My husband, two sons, and I live on a small ranch where we enjoy caring for our horses, our dogs, and our cats. My whole family is involved with an 100% foster based animal rescue group and we enjoy spending our weekends assisting with adoption events and fund raising. We also enjoy taking our horses on trail rides and traveling. I graduated from Iowa State University in Ames, Iowa with a Bachelor of Science Degree in Elementary Education I have been a Texas Certified Educator since 1989.
