My name is Sammy Niehaus and I am very excited to begin this school year at East Jackson Elementary! This is my fourth year teaching 4th grade at East Jackson! I taught 3rd grade in Phoenix, Arizona, and spent a few years teaching preschool prior to that. I am originally from Grass Lake, and graduated from Eastern Michigan University! I am the oldest of 7 children, and we are all very close. My 6 year old niece, Lucy is favorite person, and she will be in first grade this year! I recently got engaged to my fiance, Paul, and we are planning a wedding for next August! In my free time, I enjoy reading, spending time with my family, hiking, running, watching football, and watching baseball. My favorite sports teams are the Detroit Tigers, Detroit Red Wings, Green Bay Packers, and The Ohio State Buckeyes!
