Art Grades 1 through 5 and Digital Literacy Grade 1 Teacher: Mr. Nelson Suarez (Mr.Nelson)
Mr. Nelson immigrated to the Philippines about two years ago to live with his Filipina wife here. He’s lived in California, USA most of his life but he was born and spent his childhood in a small South American country, Ecuador. Mr. Nelson is very passionate about Art and has been creating artwork since he can remember. He is also very curious about how things and nature work in general. He graduated with a degree in Electrical Engineering to help satisfy that curiosity and worked in the field for some years, but he is very happy and feels very fortunate to now be teaching Art at CISM. Mr. Nelson specializes in painting but also practices lots of drawing and design periodically and has experience in clay sculpting. He loves teaching elementary school because of the level of enthusiasm and engagement the kids have. He also believes that he can have a great impact in their lives at this stage. He learns and is motivated by the kids as much as they learn and are motivated by him.
