Meet a 2023 School Teacher of the Year: Molly Niemeir of Woodstock ES!

Meet a 2023 School Teacher of the Year: Molly Niemeir of Woodstock ES!

Our teachers are amazing, which is why we share the story of a school’s Teacher of the Year every week ... please help us celebrate 2023 Woodstock Elementary School Teacher of the Year Molly Niemeir!

Woodstock Elementary School teacher Molly Niemeir grew up in the community where she now teaches kindergarten.

She was inspired early on to become a teacher and participating in Woodstock High School’s teacher cadet program confirmed for her that she was on the right path.

“I have had the privilege to see just how much heart teachers put into their work as a student before following in their footsteps as a teacher myself,” the nine-year educator said.  

Ms. Niemeir now inspires her own students to dream big.  One of her former students has a special poster on her bedroom wall that reads “You’ve Got This!” 

“It’s the mantra she sees every day as she wakes, and every night as she lays her head down on her pillow,” the student’s mom said.  “It makes her whole being smile; it causes her to feel loved and supported; and it reminds her of her beloved kindergarten teacher, Ms. Niemeir.”

For the poster was made by Ms. Niemeir who brought it to the student to cheer her on at a race in which she was running.  It’s one of many examples shared by parents and colleagues of how Ms. Niemeir believes in her students, inspires them and makes each one feel seen and appreciated.

In her own words: “I believe one of the most important initiatives for students in today’s world is providing students with an environment in which they feel loved, supported and cared for.”
