Welcome to 5th grade! Since I am lucky enough to get to know your children, let me tell you a little about myself. I moved to Idaho in 2015 and it has been a well needed change of pace. I was born, raised, and educated in New York. I taught for the New York City Department of Education for 10 years in grades K, 1, 2, 3 and 4 before moving to Idaho. When I came here I was privilaged to teach 6th grade social studies and now 5th grade. That means I have taught K, 1, 2, 3, 4, 5 and 6! It's an absolute blessing to have an intimate understanding of grade levels K-6.
Last year, I married an amazing man and went from Ms. Niemis to Mrs. Nalewajko. I added two wonderful step-daughters to my own 4 children, now making us a family of 8, ranging in age from 8-20! We love to spend time together traveling and enjoying the great outdoors.
I look forward to sharing this all important transition year with your children. This is a time when they crave independence and personal growth, and I feel privilage to move through that transition period with you.
