Jennifer Reid | Teacher/Associate Director of Education

“The Lucy Daniels School is one of the few places I know of that understands that all behaviors are expressions of emotional states. Because our therapeutic work takes place in a classroom setting, children have multiple opportunities on a daily basis to make meaningful discoveries about the effects of feelings on their behavior as they develop a separate and autonomous sense of self in school, play and collaborate with peers, and experience the rewards and frustrations that come with learning and growing. As teachers help their students work through these developmental tasks both individually and within their peer group, children have the potential to become masters of their behavior in a variety of contexts and develop empathy and understanding for others in the process.”


Ms. Reid began her professional teaching career in 2001 in New York City and has taught at the Lucy Daniels School since 2005. She has a Master of Arts degree in Early Childhood and Elementary Education from New York University and a B.A. in Art History and German from the University of Maryland. She is a certified Montessori teacher (American Montessori Society) and holds the professional credential Certified Psychoanalytic Educator.
