Natalie Rhodes-Warren, a kindergarten teacher at Glenview Elementary School and a graduate of North Little Rock High School, was named 2013-14 North Little Rock Teacher of the Year in a reception recently.

Rhodes-Warren said, "Every day I am afforded another opportunity to encourage young minds to be all they can be. Sometimes a child may need a hug, words of encouragement, or positive discipline to help them move to the next level. I am living my dream as a teacher in the North Little Rock School District." Her philosophy of education is, "Never let it rest until your good is better and your better is best."

Rhodes-Warren was recognized at the North Little Rock Board of Education meeting held on May 16.
