Elementary School

I want to take this opportunity to introduce myself to you, the students, parents, and community members of Thorp. My name is Tyler Nelson, and I am the elementary and middle school principal.

I am a 2002 graduate of Mondovi High School and I graduated in 2007 from the University of Wisconsin-Eau Claire with a Middle Childhood through Early Adolescence degree. I also have a Masters in Educational Leadership with a Principal Licensure from Viterbo University. I come from a family of four. My brother is also in education and is an administrator in the Augusta School District. I have truly enjoyed all of my experiences in the field of education. My wife’s name is Ashley and we are blessed to have two children, Ava and Camden. Ashley is a dental hygienist in Bloomer at Blue Diamond Family Dental. She loves her job and especially enjoys it when children are in her chair. A large number of my hobbies include athletics in some way or another. I am a fan and am involved in a number of different sports through officiating. I enjoy golfing, hunting, being on the lake, and spending time with my family.

I am truly lucky to partner with our amazing staff, the wonderful students, and this supportive community in educating our youth. Go Cardinals!

Mr. Nelson - Elementary / Middle School Principal
