Mr. Brandon Nishnick

I am excited to start my 2nd year at Polenta Elementary as your student's 5th grade teacher!  Last year, I was honored to receive the Outstanding Beginning Teacher of the Year Award at Polenta Elementary.  Previously I spent 13 years in accounting, and I decided to make a career switch in order to make an impact on my students.  My parents were both teachers, so I am no stranger to public education inside and outside of the classroom.  My mother taught elementary school, while my father taught middle school.   I am married and have two girls who are in elementary school as well.  I look forward in working with you and your student!
