NAME: Lecia Whittington
TITLE: Instructional Specialist at Tanners Creek Elementary School.
YEARS WITH NPS: 23 years
WHAT’S THE MOST REWARDING THING ABOUT WHAT YOU DO?
The most rewarding thing I do is helping the students reach and exceed mastery in objectives they have struggled with. I love seeing the smiles on their faces when they realize they can do it.
IF YOU COULD TELL THE WHOLE COMMUNITY ONE THING ABOUT NPS, WHAT WOULD IT BE?
Norfolk Public Schools is a school system that builds relationships. It provides many opportunities for us to grow and get to know each other - not only our coworkers, but our administrators, students and their parents, and local community members as well.
WHAT’S SOMETHING YOUR COWORKERS DO NOT KNOW ABOUT YOU?
Something my coworkers may not know about me is that I am very competitive. I do not like being at the bottom or coming in last place in anything that I participate in.
WHAT WAS A RECENT BOOK YOU READ OR MOVIE YOU SAW, AND WOULD YOU RECOMMEND IT TO OTHERS?
I just finished reading a book that was recommended to me called “Heaven is for Real!” by Todd Burpo with Lynn Vincent. I couldn’t put it down. Thanks Kindel and Celeste! Yes, I recommend it.
