As a teacher we look for students who exemplify characteristics that can help guide other students in the classroom. Jackie is a student who strives to lead by example. She is the first to offer her assistance to students who need guidance on the playground or in the classroom. She often is seen supporting our youngest students by leading them to and from the gym to the classroom. She reminds students during chapel to show respect during the lessons. She is willing to openly pray for those in our community who are in need and she joyfully thanks God for her many blessings. Jackie teaches others to better understand the expectations of NELA so that they in return can lead others. She serves with joy and empathy and embodies servant leadership here at NELA.
