Welcome to Nieman Elementary, home of the Foxes!

I am so honored to serve our community and continue to grow with the Nieman Family. I am a product of the Shawnee Mission School District having attended Cherokee Elementary (now closed), Indian Woods, and Shawnee Mission South. I earned my bachelor’s degree from Kansas State University in Elementary Education with an emphasis in English as a Second Language and my master’s degree in School Leadership from Baker University.  In my time in education I have taught 3rd and 5th grade, was an ELL Specialist for PreK-5th grade students, was an Instructional Coach, and Administrative Intern. 

At Nieman, we work to fulfill our mission in all we do. We are committed to providing a safe, positive school environment with self-motivated, literate learners. Our phenomenal staff works tirelessly to ensure the academic and interpersonal success of all our students. We look forward to partnering with you in the education of your children. Please reach out to us with any questions, or for any additional information.
