Islen Nelson

I am from Chicago, Illinois and moved to the Denver area about 4 years ago.  While in Illinois, I earned my Bachelor degree in Sociology and Political Science from Dominican University.  I went on to earn my Master of Social Work from Dominican University.  After working in child welfare and youth outreach, I returned to school to earn my School Social Work Certification.  I worked in Illinois as the public district's school social work parochial school liaison, providing all private schools within the district's boundaries with school social work services.  Working in the schools as a part of an interdisciplinary team that helps all students gain and maintain access to their education is my heart's home, and I am so excited to be doing that at Main Street School with a population of students and incredibly talented staff and administration that inspires and motivates me.
