Mrs. Reid Profile
Before Mrs. Reid started her career at Pulaski County High School in 2017, she filled her life with a lot of different things.
Mrs. Reid grew up on a dairy farm in Ohio and worked on the farm for most of her childhood. She was born deaf and has to wear hearing aids in both of her ears.
She attended college at Muskingum University in New Concord, OH where she threw shot and discus for the track and field team.
Mrs. Reid went on to throw shot and discus in the national championship. She threw 147 in discus which secured her the #3 spot in the nation. Mrs. Reid was an all academic all-American and threw against the American record holder. With all of the training and weightlifting that goes into throwing, she was able to be a female bouncer at a club, which is uncommon.
After college, she became a principal at North Tazewell Elementary School and then later at Tazewell Middle School. Even with her career she still managed to make her life fascinating. While working at Tazewell she was willingly tazed by police explorers at her school.
She had very interesting life experiences outside of her studies and sports. She worked in a slaughterhouse and also accidentally hit a pedestrian with her car in the Wal-Mart parking lot. The pedestrian was fine, but it was an experience Mrs. Reid wouldn't recommend repeating.
Mrs. Reid taught the players of the New York Yankees and Toronto Blue Jays English during summers. She specifically had a good relationship with Vladimir Guerrero Jr. and called him “Vladdy”.
She has been to 5 different countries, studied abroad, and has studied 5 different languages.
Mrs. Reid has also been to the prison to learn about gang signs and the gangs that are all over Virginia; she is highly knowledgeable on this subject.
Even with having such an amazing and interesting life, Mrs. Reid remains humble and sweet.
Mrs. Reid lives her life by Hebrews 11:1. "Faith is being sure of what you hope for and certain of what you do not see."
