Featured Teacher: Jimmetta Reid | Lead Teacher | Venning Road

Ms. Jimmetta Reid is a Pre-Toddler C lead teacher at our Venning Road center. She is a Charleston native and a graduate of Claflin University, where she received her bachelor’s degree in criminal justice. Ms. Jimmetta has worked in childcare for five years and has been a valued team member at CDC since 2016. Her energetic and fun-loving personality brings warmth to the classroom each day.

Ms. Jimmetta loves using natural materials to help guide the children in their learning experience with a Reggio inspired environment. Her favorite aspect of working in the Pre-Toddler classroom is inspiring her student to explore the outdoors and discover the ways that God’s natural wonders can be brought into the classroom through creative experiences.

Outside of work, Ms. Jimmetta enjoys spending time with her family, including her one-year-old son, Asher. She said her older sister, Alicia, is her hero and that she is “continuously inspired by her ability to give 110 percent of herself toward all aspects of her life.”

Her personal motto is, “Do unto others as you would have them do unto you.” (Luke 6:31). She feels this scripture emphasizes the importance of giving, along with treating each person you encounter with respect and love. One fun fact you may not know about Jimmetta is she is also a trained dancer in lyrical jazz, tap and hip-hop dance.
