Superintendent Lynn Torres announced that Heather Reid will be the new principal at Anderson Elementary for the new school year in the fall. She will be taking Cindy Nerren’s position who will be retiring at the end of the 2023 school year.
Reid graduated from Texas A&M in 2005 with a bachelor’s degree in education. She received her master’s degree from Lamar University in 2013. Currently, Reid serves as the Associate Dean of Instruction at Bryan ISD. She began her career as an English Language Arts and Special Education teacher at Stephen F. Austin Middle School in Bryan, TX. She promoted to Instructional Coach and recently to the Dean of Instruction.
Reid has lived in College Station for the past 20-plus years which is where she met her husband of nine years, Brad Reid, who is originally from Lufkin. Brad graduated from Lufkin High School, class of 1998, and moved to College Station where he served as a patrol officer and SWAT operator.
The couple have three girls, Drew, Finlie and Landrie who are involved in dance, soccer, softball, and gymnastics.
Reid enjoys cooking and trying new recipes, working in her yard and spending time with family doing anything outside or making crafts.
“I am honored and grateful for the opportunity to be the new principal of Anderson Elementary,” said Reid. “The foundation for character development and love for literacy begins at the elementary level and I am ready to work along side the Anderson team to create the optimal educational experience for our students.”
“Lufkin ISD is excited to welcome Heather Reid as the principal of Anderson,” Superintendent Lynn Torres said. “Heather has a deep knowledge of curriculum and instruction and is enthusiastic about doing the best for children. She will bring that excitement to Anderson Elementary.”
