Welcome to 6th Grade Science!
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 and is excited to be starting his second year teaching 6th Grade Science at Sterling Middle School.
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.
Mr. Nilson enjoys all sorts of gaming, and is looking forward to finding new ways to use games to make learning fun and interesting for his students.
Please refer to the calendar on the left for updates on class activities, and feel free to contact Mr. Nilson with any questions or comments.
