Myndi Nelke

The 2017-2018 school year marks my 16th year working with students with special needs in the Northshore School District. Math is my absolute favorite subject to teach. I love it, and I constantly strive to spark a love of math in all my students. In addition to being a special education teacher, I coach the NCHS Cheer Team and am one of North Creek's Link Crew coordinators. 

I grew up slightly north of Denver, Colorado and graduated from Northglenn High School. I moved to the San Francisco Bay Area, managed a record store (Camelot Music), and eventually managed the Customer Relations team at Adobe Systems. Adobe moved me to Seattle, and I have been a Washington girl since 1994. My twins, Ben and Alex, arrived on the scene in 1994 as well. 

In 2010, I was lucky enough to marry a fellow Northglenn High School graduate who just happens to be an Inglemoor High School math teacher and soccer coach. So, it is no surprise that I love math and have been a devoted Sounders FC season ticket holder since 2010.

My family loves to travel together, and Walt Disney World is our favorite place to be.  We are devoted Disney fans, so don't be shocked when you spot a hidden Mickey (or two) in my classroom. 

I am thrilled to be a North Creek Jaguar!
