Ian Nelson: From RSM Student to Principal

After years spent as an RSM student, tutor, and teacher, Ian took the reins as Principal of RSM-San Mateo to continue to inspire and educate new students.

After having been associated with RSM for almost 10 years as a student, camper, camp counselor, tutor and teacher, Ian decided he wanted to join RSM full-time upon graduation. A month after leaving campus he was on a flight to start his duties as Vice Principal of RSM Evergreen in San Jose, CA. In January 2018 he opened the doors of RSM Burlingame with 56 wonderful students. He was then promoted to Principal of RSM San Mateo. He loves working with his students, teachers and staff, and knowing that an RSM education for a child means stronger logic and confidence in - and ultimately a love for - math.
