My name is Jessica Niermeyer. I have a degree in Elementary Education and a degree in Spanish. I have taught Spanish and Reading at Raymond School for 15 years! I started out teaching 1st though 8th grade Spanish and 2nd grade reading, but soon found my passion was in the elementary ages. I then switched to kindergarten through 3rd grade Spanish and 1st and 2nd grade reading. I actually attended Raymond School as a student long ago. Many of my teachers are now my colleagues. Raymond School is like my family….it’s been in my life since I was 5 years old! When I walk into school each morning, it feels just like home! I grew up on a tree nursery in Raymond (Eder Nursery) and the nursery was very involved in Raymond School…planting an outdoor classroom and garden. This gave me my passion for the outdoors, the environment, trees, and education! I went to college at UW Oshkosh for a double degree in Elementary Education and Spanish. I always knew I would be a teacher. I have 3 daughters: ages 3, 9, and 10 (Quinn, Cap, and Kya). I love to travel with my family, especially to Spanish speaking countries. I lived in Guatemala for a semester in college in a home with no electricity and no running water. This brought about my love for the Spanish language and culture. Raymond School holds a big place in my heart!
