New counselor comes back home


October 18, 2019

Kathy Nelson is happy in her new job as the Burlington school counselor.

Burlington Schools welcomes Kathy Nelson as the new counselor this year.

Nelson has been in education for over 30 years, most recently as a high school English teacher at Justice Alma Wilson Seeworth Academy in Oklahoma City for 12 years. She received her B.S. in English and education from St. Mary of the Plains in Dodge City, Kansas, and a masters degree in human relations from the University of Oklahoma.

Her experience also includes adult vocational technical training, as well as serving as an adjunct educator at Seminole State.

Her philosophy in education is to always do what is in the best interest of the child.

Born in Cherokee and raised in the Salt Plains Lake Area, coming to Burlington was an opportunity to come home. Her parents and grandparents were from the Driftwood area. She and her husband plan to retire in Nescatunga where her grandparents opened the first business on the lake, John and Myrt's convenience store.

Nelson has three boys, six grandchildren and two great-grandchildren. Coming to Burlington is a completely different world for her, but she said, "I love it! I appreciate the family atmosphere and the community and parental support." She is grateful for the gracious acceptance from the students, staff and community.
