Jefferson City Catholic School Teacher to Receive NCEA Award

Lesha Neidert

A Jefferson City Catholic school teacher has been selected to receive an award from the National Catholic Education Association (NCEA). Lesha Neidert, a second-grade teacher at St. Peter Interparish School, will receive the "Lead. Learn. Proclaim." Award from the NCEA this spring. The honorees are chosen from the more than 150,000 educators serving in the nation's Catholic elementary and secondary schools. During her tenure at St. Peter school, Neidert has experienced the importance of faith in education. "We understand that if you're not faith-driven, you're not putting your students first," she said. "I think St. Peter does a great job of putting faith first, students first, families first." Read more about Mrs. Neidert in this Catholic Missourian article!
