I began my career in education in 1990 as a first grade teacher at All Saints Academy in Breese, Illinois and then taught fourth grade in Olney, Illinois for six years. In 1997, I landed a junior high language arts position at Aviston Elementary and in a variety of positions, have been here since.
After twenty-seven years in the field, and still loving what I do, I currently teach grade 4 and assume duties as the Assistant Principal. If I had to do it over, the field of education would still be my pick.
I grew up in Damiansville with seven siblings and wonderful parents. I married Duane Niemeyer and we have two children, Lucy and Sam. We built a home north of town in 2000 and consider Aviston, home. It’s a great town with great people and a great school!
I really enjoy meeting new people each year through my students and look forward to getting to know you and your child(ren)!
