Mr. Cole Nelson is a eighth grade history teacher at Springville Junior High School. He used to live in Elba, Idaho and will return there at the end of this year. “I am moving back to Idaho in order to teach and run the family farm,” he said, “My future plans are to move to Idaho at the end of the month and stay there for the rest of my life.”
While at SJHS, Mr. Nelson was not just a history teacher, he was also the girls’ basketball coach along with Mr. Strong. But that is not all Mr. Nelson did this year at SJHS. He actually was one of the sprinter coaches of the track team this spring. “I've always wanted to teach U.S. History and coach basketball along with track and field.” He has done exactly that.
“I feel sad that Mr. Nelson is leaving, his class was one of my favorites, it was also a lot of fun,” said Ian Collings, an eighth grader at SJHS, “I even transferred in for a second semester.” Mr. Nelson enjoyed his stay at SJHS by learning to love the atmosphere and interacting with students and teachers. Farewell Mr. Nelson.
