Jose Daniels Flores…Copey Student
Emery Reid…Dream Teamer!
Our team of volunteer teachers supporting the “on-line” educational services is a very balanced cadre of educators. Early on I mentioned that if we were to start a school, this group of teachers could cover all of the essential educational bases needed for success.
Emery is an excellent team member supporting this project. He fits right in with the “Friends of Copey” with his energy, desire, and of course, the “heart of a servant” typically associated with “Friends”. Emery has said, “I am thankful for the opportunity to be a part of the team!”
Emery grew up in southwest Virginia nearby Emory & Henry College. While he is a graduate of the University of Virginia, his wife Cathy graduated from Emory & Henry College. With “Friends” there is always a close connection with our college. Emery and Cathy have three great kids and it is obvious theirs is a great close knit family.
As a school educator, Emery has strong views on building bridges between his own school community and the world community. He believes such bridges when built contribute to much better understanding and empathy of others.
Emery has served as school counselor and coordinator for the Upward Bound program. Currently he is teaching Spanish and has taught history in the past.
Teach and lead and they will follow.
