Ms. Nikki Hemen
Hello! This is my first year with WHS and my tenth year teaching. This year I will be teaching 9th grade science as well as Earth/space science. Prior to my teaching career, I was a Conservation Agent for the MDC (wildlife law enforcement). I am a total science nerd (life science and rocks are my fav!) and I love to learn anything new.
I have a son, Jaxon, who will be in third grade at East Elementary this year. I live in Richland on the same farm I grew up on. My passions are hunting, fishing, farming, trapshooting, and anything outdoors. I enjoy spending time on the creek with my son and four dogs.
My favorite quote:
"The expert in anything was once a beginner."
