Ms. Maia Neslund
My name is Maia Neslund and this is my second year teaching at RBE. I previously taught in Dothan for five years, as well as in Oregon, Washington, and Montana. I was born and raised in Minnesota and graduated from Becker High School in 1998. After high school graduation, I attended the University of Oregon and started my career in teaching and education.
I have two amazing children, Jack and Alivia. We enjoy spending time outdoors, reading, working of various projects, and visiting with friends and family.
My philosophy in education is, Each one, Teach one. I believe in all my students; past, present, and future. I look forward to an amazing school year and growing together as a learning community. I have a tremendous passion for learning and leading others in the direction of higher education.
