4th, 5th & 6th
y name is Elyse Niemann and I teach grades 4, 5, and 6, in the Stillwater class. I earned my teaching license at Sierra Nevada College and have been teaching since 2008. I received my bachelor's degree in International Relations and Russian from UC Davis. Prior to teaching, I worked with at-risk youth in South Lake Tahoe in a wilderness therapy group home and started a street outreach program. I am currently earning my elementary Montessori credential from the American Montessori Society School in Sunnyvale, California. I am honored to be part of the High Desert Montessori community of professionals, students, and families. The best part of my job is the students who inspire and amaze me. On weekends and holidays you may find me playing in the mountains - hiking, skiing, or biking.
