About Mrs. Niehausen

My name is Abbie Niehausen and I am delighted to be your child's teacher this year. I absolutely love my job! I love learning and love imparting my enthusiasm to my students. It is my desire to impart to all of my students four important values. When a child leaves my classroom, my goal is for them to have grasped the following concepts: 1) To Be Hard Working 2) Compassionate Toward Others  3) Have an Insatiable Love of Learning 4) Aware of Their Own Potential

Personal Interests

So here is a little information about me:

I love drinking coffee! One of my favorite hobbies is researching creative ideas on Pinterest.com

I love to sing, travel and bake.  In 2010 I started a cupcake business called HOLYcupcake!

HOLYcupcake! was started because I had so much fun making cupcakes for the Kindergarten/First grade bake sales that I decided to turn it into a business venture.

Last summer I married my best friend and co-worker Brian Niehausen (he teaches Spanish and Algebra at NBCA) and couldn't be happier!
