Degrees and Certifications:

Mr. Jeff Nelles


Welcome to another school year.  I am excited to be a part of the Mat-Su Day School and look forward to working with students and parents.  

I started teaching in 1992 and have taught at Chugiak High School and Colony High School.  I have worked in Student Support Services and spent eight years as an Assistant Principal at Wasilla High School.  This is my first year as principal at the Day School.  I am passionate about my work and serving my community.  I believe in our students and staff and will continue to work for and with them.  

I have spent my life in Alaska with my family and enjoy the outdoors, hunting, and fishing.

Please feel free to contact me if you have questions, comments or concerns.
