Dr. Reed, originally from Charlotte, enjoys teaching at a small, liberal arts college where the low student-to-faculty ratio allows for small classroom sizes and one-on-one teaching experiences. The University of Olivet allows him to get to know his students personally, and provides a fun teaching and learning atmosphere.
