The Roanoke Rapids Graded School District has nominated Clara Hearne Pre-K teacher Jennifer Neathery as its 2017 Exceptional Children’s Educator of Excellence.  

Neathery will go on to represent the district at the annual state Exceptional Children’s Conference in Greensboro in November.  

“Jennifer is a teacher that lives to serve children and is an advocate for all children in and out of her classroom,” said Alexandria Evans, RRGSD Exceptional Children's director.  “She is the true embodiment of a servant leader who works beyond the hours required conducting home visits, play-based assessments, collaborative work with parents in their home and on-site, works with daycare centers, and other related service providers in the community as an advocate for exceptional children.”

Neathery, who has taught for 15 years, primarily working with students who have special needs, including children with autism and developmental delays, was surprised with the announcement Monday morning at Clara Hearne Pre-K Center by district leaders.

“I love what I do here. It is truly an honor to serve the children of Roanoke Rapids and their families,” she said when accepting the nomination.  

“She is a teacher that continuously strives for the betterment of all students,” Evans added.  “We are proud to have her in this district.”
