Why is it nunca estoy and not estoy nunca

I noticed that nunca goes after nosotros,yo,él/ella, but not estoy. Why is that

Hola Precious

With verbs (any verb, not only estar) you can either say: 

Nunca estoy...

or 

No estoy nunca...

What we say in the lesson is that when there is a subject, the subject goes first, before nunca, not after:

Yo nunca... (not Nunca yo...)

Nosotros nunca... (not Nunca nosotros...)

María nunca... (not Nunca María...)

Saludos
