In 2015, Nehmer, a 2012 graduate of Fort Atkinson High School, will head into her senior year at Butler University in Indianapolis, Ind., where she is working on a degree in elementary education with licensure in special education, reading, and early childhood education. Having volunteered for many years as an aide at Parent’s Cooperative Preschool in Fort Atkinson, in the summer of 2014 she was employed there as the two-year-old summer school teacher. Nehmer hopes to have the chance to come back to this area to continue her teaching career after her 2016 graduation.
