Mr. Neilson

Welcome to Physical Education with Mr. Neilson. I am honored to be working with your son/daughter in class this year. This is my third year teaching in the Iowa City Community School District and third year teaching at the elementary school level. I am from Bakersfield, California, where I received my bachelors degree in Physical Education from California State University, Bakersfield. I enjoy helping others learn and benefit from fitness and skill-related activities as well as learning about body awareness and movement concepts.

My goal in Physical Education is to help students become lifelong learners of fitness. I want to see them take what they learn from class and apply it outside the classroom.

Contact me with any questions at neilson.jacob@iowacityschools.org.
