My name is Brenda Niedzwiecki. I began teaching first grade in 2016. I began my teaching career when I graduated with a degree in Early Childhood Education from SIU-E and began teaching part-time in the Pre-k Program at St. Rose in 1992. In 1997, I also became the parent educator for the 0-3 program. I achieved certification in the National Boards for Professional Teaching standards in 2008. Then I completed my Masters Degree in Educational Studies with an emphasis in literacy from McKendree University. I began working with the TItle 1 Reading in the afternoons in 2012 and completed my Literacy Specialist Degree from SIU-E.

St. Rose Elementary is near and dear to my heart. I grew up in St. Rose, attended St. Rose Elementary, and now live in St. Rose in the house where I grew up. I am married and have two children (both attended St. Rose).  I’m looking forward to a great year in first grade!
