Henrico’s Top Teachers – John Jeter

John Jeter didn’t need any help finding his classroom on his first day as an exceptional education teacher at Tuckahoe Middle School six years ago – he’d attended class in it as a gifted and talented student at Tuckahoe years earlier.

“It is unusual coming back to your school,” he said, with a chuckle. “When I came back [as a teacher], there were four or five teachers here that I had had as a student, and one is still here.”

But the return has been a meaningful one for Jeter, who spent six years teaching exceptional education at Fairfield Middle School before moving to Tuckahoe.

Henrico’s Top Teachers – Elizabeth Clark

Elizabeth Clark decided she wanted to become a science teacher in seventh grade. She traces her motivation to the influence of some excellent teachers she had as a youngster – and also to some who were less than stellar.

“I had some absolutely wonderful teachers that I really looked up to and still keep in touch with today,” she said, “and some terrible teachers who made me want to go into the field too, thinking, ‘Boy, I’ve got to be able to do it better than you can and make science fun.’” > Read more.

Henrico’s Top Teachers – Linda Henderson-Wagstaff

Linda Henderson-Wagstaff never intended to become a teacher, but she's always sought to help children however she could. The latter made the former inevitable.

Henderson-Wagstaff was content as a secretary at the New Bridge Middle School in Eastern Henrico when it opened in 2002 – her latest in a line of office jobs, following a college degree in office management. But the students at New Bridge – who were there because of their problems in traditional school settings – made a quick impact on her. > Read more.

Henrico’s Top Teachers – Cheryl Waite

Cheryl Waite starts every day by hugging a group of bright-eyed and eager kindergarten students at Glen Allen Elementary – something she never would have expected.

“I would have never dreamed I would be a teacher,” Waite said with a laugh. “I was always the kid that was fine with flying beneath the radar and did fine in school, I was kind of content with going by with ease. Teaching kind of found me.”

After graduating from James Madison University with a degree in health sciences, Waite wasn’t sure what she wanted to do with her career. > Read more.

Henrico’s Top Teachers – Kathryn Costley

Kathryn Costley turned a career as a social worker into one as a teacher who works with special needs students.

Costley, who is in her first year as a Henrico teacher, works with exceptional education students at Highland Springs High School who have mild to moderate physical or intellectual disabilities. She previously taught special education in Charles City County for more than a decade, following a career switch that occurred unexpectedly.

“I was in a master’s/doctoral program to get my degree in social work and started substitute teaching, fell in love and was offered an emergency teaching certificate,” she said. Fourteen years later, she knows she made the right choice. > Read more.
