Mrs. Sonia Nelson

I am the Physical Education/Health teacher.  I have been at SPX for 19 years.  My BS degree was attained from The University of South Alabama in Criminal Justice.  I later went back to school for teacher certification when my children were young.  I have been married for 33 years and have two grown children who live in Pike Road near Montgomery.  They both attended St. Pius from preschool through eighth grade.  I am an active member in ASAHPERD,  the state Physical Education Association.  I also served on the state Board.  I enjoy boating, swimming, arts and crafts and traveling.  I strive to introduce students to as many activities as possible in hopes that they will have an interest sparked in a lifetime sport.  I am the moderator of a traveling Jump Rope Team for the American Heart Association.  We have been invited to both National and State level conferences to perform in Arkansas and Birmingham.  I am also a recipient of the Future Fisherman Foundation grant to implement fishing into our curriculum.
