  •  Welcome to Level Up! 

    Born and raised in the greater Sterling area, Mr. Nilson spent 5 years as an analyst and studied Administration of Justice and Biology at George Mason University before discovering his passion for teaching. He received his teaching credentials through Shenandoah University.  He is excited to begin his third year at Sterling teaching the Level Up resource block and afterschool program.


    Mr. Nilson is married, with a middle school aged rabbit and elementary school aged cat, who despite his best efforts have not displayed interest in the science curriculum besides attempting to reverse Paavlov's bell experiments.
