Hi everyone, I'm Reid. I'm in my 4th year of teaching at primary level, have done some teaching at tertiary level and a few others along the way. Time with friends and family is precious and best spent at a bbq, restaurant, golf course or beach. Love to learn and can't wait to get started on this. Thanks for the efforts in helping us all connect Sonya.
