Sra. Nellos was born and raised in Panama City, Panama. She came to New Mexico in 1981 and earned a Bachelor’s in Anthropology and Latin American Studies. In 1996 she obtained a Master’s in Elementary Education with emphasis in Multicultural and Bilingual Education. She also holds an Educational Administrative License since 2004. She prefers being in the classroom with kids; they are much more fun than adults and observing them grow and learn is wondrous!
Sra. Nellos has taught Kinder through third in APS, always in bilingual/dual language settings. She also taught ESL and English Literature in 7th through 12th in an international school in Panama. She has taught 2nd grade at Cien Aguas International School for 10 years and, as always, loves to begin a new journey with her incoming students! Michelle is mom to Tino (31), Alex (30) and Isa (20), and grandma to 19 month-old Georgina Nicole, who has completely stolen her heart!
