Ms. Nija Williams

HI Grannemann Eagles !!!! My name is J. Nija’ Williams and this is my 4th year at Grannemann and my 5th year of teaching. I was a substitute teacher / TA for all of those years, but this is my very FIRST year as a classroom teacher for Hazelwood School District, and I am so EXCITED!!!!!!  Teaching is my absolute passion and I cannot wait to see what this year has in store. I attended college at Missouri Southern State University (MSSU), in Joplin, Mo, where I completed 6 years of schooling to receive my Bachelor’s. In my free time, I enjoy shopping and napping, and trying new restaurants.

I want to be remembered as the “cool “ teacher who was always there when you needed a hug, or just a listening ear.
