Ms. Reis graduated from UMASS Amherst with a Bachelor’s Degree in Social Work in 1999. Following that, she earned her Master’s Degree in Educational Leadership from Northeastern University.
Following her college years, Ms. Reis has spent 20+ years working with at-risk youth, 19+ years working with gang involved youth, 17+ years in alternative education and 16+ years working with English Language Learners/Native Speakers. In these years Ms. Reis taught ELA and history in a night school program and was a day/night school principal in a small school in the south end of Boston in the heart of the Cathedral Projects near Villa Victoria.
In her role of principal in South Boston she was in charge of a multi-service agency that provided GED, food pantry, high school diploma, mentoring daycare to Boston Public School youth. She also held numerous, varied positions including, but not limited to: Director of Training for Incarcerated Adults, Director of Youth Development, Director of Girl Programs and Director of Educational Options.
