Mr. Nandhakumar Nithiyanandan



I am an international teacher from India. This is my first year teaching in the USA and I am very proud to be a member of the Spartan family. Here I live in Clayton and I love the city. 

I completed my Diploma in mechanical engineering in 2009, then I entered into teaching Mathematics. Then I had a chance to complete my Bachelor of Engineering in Mechanical by 2016. I got certified as a special education teacher in 2019, then I started teaching special kids (Exceptional children). 

I am here on a cultural exchange program. I share the knowledge of my Indian culture with students and staff. Since I come from a highly diverse country, I enjoy the diversity and ethinic balance here. Also, I appreciate the attitude of the people in terms of accepting and carrying an original newcomer. The school system and teaching methodology is different in my country and I feel great about the teaching strategies, individual support and curriculum development in the USA. Students are enjoying the best part of their lives, learning the required skills to be successful in their dream.
