Degrees and Certifications:
Welcome to 3rd Grade! My name is Karen Niemi and this is my first year at Ballentine Elementary School! I have been teaching 3rd Grade for 8 years now! This is my 4th year in North Carolina and I love the warm sun and friendly people! I moved from the Cleveland, Ohio area with my husband and son where I taught 3rd grade and 5th grade. We live in Fuquay-Varina with our 2 cats! I am looking forward to a great year!
