Mr. Justin Reed
Mr. Reed is a UNO graduate with a degree in Elementary Education. After experiencing the camaraderie found throughout the St. Bernard Parish and its schoolboard, Mr. Reed is looking forward to another school year in this parish to continue making a difference in all his students’ lives. Mr. Reed’s never-give-up attitude and passion for teaching allows him to put in the time to know all his students' needs and concerns it is what will help him create a class filled with young minds wanting to learn together at Meraux elementary as they go on the journey that is the 5th grade.
In his spare time, Mr. Reed enjoys drawing, reading, playing games, photography, and spending quality time with his family and pets.
One quote that Mr. Reed thinks of when looking to reignite his reason for getting young students to get joy out of reading is from his favorite cartoon, Gargoyles:
“The written word is all that stands between memory and oblivion. Without books as our anchors, we are cast to drift, neither teaching nor learning. They are windows on the past, mirrors on the present, and prisms reflecting all possible futures. Books are lighthouses erected in the dark sea of time.” –Greg Weisman
