Kristen Reynolds is a faculty member at Southeastern University’s Pathways School of Excellence. The Lord opened a door in the spring of 2016 to return to her alma mater as a founding teacher at Pathways. She knew only the Lord would bring a city girl from Boston, Massachusetts, back to Lakeland, Florida.
Miss Reynolds has several years of teaching experience in general and special education. She holds her certification for teaching in both Massachusetts and Florida. Prior to becoming a part of the Pathways team, she taught upper elementary/middle school at Abundant Life Christian School in Wilmington, Massachusetts, and eighth grade intensive reading at Mulberry Middle School in Mulberry, Florida.
Miss Reynolds’s goal is to walk alongside her students as they learn and grow in a safe, encouraging and academically rigorous learning environment. She enjoys collaborating with various Southeastern University faculty and staff to develop and promote learning opportunities for her students outside of the classroom. Additionally, she seeks opportunities for learning within the local community of Lakeland. Miss Reynolds aims to prepare students to be equipped with the tools necessary in becoming active and contributing participants within their community.
Miss Reynolds is also a founding board member of a local non-profit organization for helping the homeless, and she is actively involved in her local church. She is currently pursuing a Master of Education in Reading and Exceptional Student Education.
