Hello! My name is Amy Nissen and I am the Instructional Facilitator at Florence Elementary.  I have been with Omaha Public Schools since 2006 – teaching sixth grade and fifth grade along the way.  

I am a proud graduate of the University of Iowa where I earned two degrees – Cinema & Comparative Literature as well as Elementary Education.  I was awarded a Master’s Degree in Curriculum & Instruction from Wayne State College and later returned for a second Master’s Degree in Elementary Administration. 

I look forward to getting to know each Florence student as I help them to learn and grow!
