Mr. Lester (Les) Neipert

Hello, my name is Lester (Les) Neipert. I am originally from a small coal mining town in Pennsylvania.  Upon graduation, I enlisted in the United States Air Force which after serving twenty two years I would eventually retire.  During my career in the Air Force, I was fortunate to experience a few different specialties, such as medical, special tactics, and air traffic control.  After my retirement, I worked as an air traffic controller for six years.  It was during this time that I decided that I needed a change and decided to apply to graduate school and pursue a career in education.  It was during my graduate program that I found a passion for special education.  I have always felt the need to inspire or lead from the front, pushing and challenging others to give 110% and understand that not every door is shut for them.  As a Special Education PLC teacher, I have the ability to push and challenge my students to work to their full potential and understand that life has just begun for them.  My philosophy is simple…”never quit”.
