Degrees and Certifications:
My name is Cheryl Nelson and I am a Math teacher at Grafton High School. I grew up in Connecticut before attending the University of Miami, where I received a BS in Electrical Engineering with minors in math and business. I then moved to Massachusetts to work at Lucent Technologies (now Nokia). During this time I completed my Masters in Business Administration at Boston College. After 15 years with Lucent, I decided to pursue a career in teaching math. I spent a year and a half as an IA at Grafton Middle School, while earning my teaching license, followed by 2 years of teaching math at Shrewsbury High School. Outside of school, I spent a lot of time with my 3 kids and attend a vast number of youth football, basketball, baseball, lacrosse games as well as gymnastics meets. Otherwise, I love swimming, boating, reading, photography and traveling. I am very excited to be back in Grafton, teaching math at GHS!
