Meet Ms. Niemela!


Hello and welcome! My name is Morgan Niemela. I grew up in Cokato, MN. I am the oldest of six siblings (I have three sisters and two brothers). I earned my teaching degree through St. Cloud State University, where I triple-majored in teaching, English, and communication studies.

Since then, I've been teaching at Belle Plaine High School. The 2016-2017 school year will be my third year. This year, I'm excited to be teaching 7th and 9th grade English. I'm passionate about education and about literacy, and I look forward to sharing that excitement with students as we journey through the year together. My favorite part about living and teaching in Belle Plaine is the strong community. It's wonderful to see the support that students and community members have for one another. At school, we try to foster that sense of community in our students as well. I am also the head speech coach for Belle Plaine, and I'm thrilled to say that we have a strong speech program which continues to improve and grow.

When I'm not at school, I enjoy spending time with my friends and family. My youngest sister is only 8 years old. Though we are far apart in age, we love having fun together. I also spend an ample amount of my free time reading and playing with my cats. When I can, I spend time camping and traveling.

Please feel free to contact me with any questions! I look forward to a great year!
