About Mrs. Neff
My name is Jennifer (Parker) Neff. I am 27 years old. I was born and raised on a dairy farm just north of Hecker. From a young age, my parents instilled the importance of faith, family, and hard work. I am truly blessed to have such compassionate parents and 3 supportive siblings. Since I am the youngest of the four children, I have had the privilege of being an aunt to 5 nieces and 6 nephews. Needless to say, I absolutely love being around children!
I am a graduate of Saints Peter and Paul School, and Gibault Catholic High School in Waterloo. I graduated with honors with a Bachelor's Degree in Elementary Education from Southern Illinois University- Edwardsville.
I am married to my high school sweetheart, Jeremy Neff. He is a chemist and a farmer. We welcomed our first child this past April. Our daughter, Riley, has brought so much love and joy to our lives. We enjoy spending time outside together as a family. We currently live in Waterloo.
Having experienced the joys of a Catholic education growing up, I knew this was my calling. I am grateful for the opportunity to be a part of an outstanding school, and to be able to teach, challenge, and share my faith with each and every student. This will be my fourth year in first grade after having taught one year in fourth grade. I couldn't be any happier to be where I am! I am looking forward to a fun and exciting year in first grade! God is good all the time! All the time, God is good!
