Degrees and Certifications:

Ms. Reid

My name is Marshella Reid, and I teach 5th grade at Yates Mill Elementary School. I began my teaching career in 2012. I have taught grades 2nd –5th and was an academic coach for three years. I attended North Carolina Central University for both undergraduate and graduate school. I hold a Bachelor of Arts degree in Elementary Education with a concentration in math and a Master of Arts in Elementary Education. In 2009, I received my National Board of Professional Teaching Standards in Early Childhood General Education. In 2015 I decided to add another career under my belt and became a realtor. Yes, I currently do both education and real estate. 

I am the proud mom of a soon to be 5-year-old. Blake is very intelligent and keeps me super busy. In my spare time (what little I have), I enjoy finding new adventures to keep Blake engaged, spending time with family and friends, traveling, and exploring other avenues in real estate. Besides Blake, food is the way to my heart. I love any kind of seafood, pasta, sushi and chocolate.  

Throughout my teaching career, my philosophy that EVERY child can learn has remained the same. I have always set high expectations and provided students with a safe and nurturing environment that is conducive for learning. I look forward to having an amazing year at YMES.
