Degrees and Certifications:
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”.
