Mrs. Nissel’s Biography
I am so excited to start my second year as a teacher at Smart’s Mill MS. I learned a lot last year from my students and look forward to taking that positive experience and using it to make this year even better. Being a teacher is my second career. Prior to entering into the teaching field, I put my Architectural Degree from the University of Detroit to good use as a Construction Manager at a large utility company.
After working as a CM for 27 years, I retired and chose to inter into teaching. I have completed the TeachVa Career Switchers program majoring in Middle School science and Earth Science. as well as my Masters in Education-SPED K-12 from Shenandoah University. Prior to coming to SMMS, I was a Teaching Assistant at JCHS and FHS both in SPED and technology.
I have a great love of science and nature so I spend as much time outdoors as possible in my garden or riding my horse Charlie.
