Mrs. Lori A. Reed
I have over 22 years of experience in Education. I began my teaching career in 1993 with 7th grade English and have taught all levels of English and Language Arts from 7th - 12th grade.
I have been an educator at Childersburg High School for over 11 years. I taught 11th & 9th grade English from 2007 - 2014 and became the Guidance Counselor in 2014. Being the Guidance Counselor has by far been the most challenging and rewarding part of my career. I miss being in the classroom because I no longer get to form long-term, deep bonds with students, but I now get to connect with and impact more students on a broader basis. I'm so thankful for all the opportunities I've been given here at Childersburg High School.
I received my Bachelor's Degree in Education in 1991 from Jacksonville State University, with certification in the fields of English and psychology. I then went back to school after 21 years in 2013 and received my Masters in Education in School Counseling from The University of West Alabama.
On a personal note, I have been married to my high-school sweetheart for over 29 years. We have 3 wonderful kids--2 girls and a boy. We also have an amazing granddaughter who is the joy of all our lives.
My career goals over the next several years are to continue to grow as a Guidance Counselor and help our students become successful in their lives after high school.
