Hello students and parents, my name is Coach Niehaus. I will be teaching my 22nd year of 8th grade math at WHMS this year. I look forward to working with your child during the 2020-2021 school year.
I've been a teacher and football coach at WHMS since 1999. I received my undergraduate degree from Western Kentucky University in 1996 and my Master's Degree in Administration from Tennessee State University in 2004. I chose to stay in the classroom rather than become a principal because I love teaching children .
My passions include all levels of football, UK basketball, great music, rescuing animals and my country. My hobbies are attending live sporting and music events, target shooting, fitness, and working with animals.
This year will be challenging for students and teachers due to the hybrid schedule and virtual learning. We all need to be patient with each other as we all learn how to deal with this difficult learning situation. Please email me if you have any questions or concerns you can email me. Let's all have a great year. I look forward to helping the students transition from middle school to high school.
