At the beginning of the school year, Harrity Elementary Mastery Charter School suffered a horrible loss, when they lost one of their beloved teachers, Jamie Soukup Reid and her husband Will.
Ms. Reid would have started her third year at Harrity Elementary Mastery Charter School this fall. She was the 7th grade teacher for literature and reading and the moderator for the Chess Club. She was a fantastic teacher who touched many lives through her classroom, her involvement in after school clubs and activities and her general love of life. Ms. Reid was very passionate about her students and continually believed in the endless opportunities available to them through education. Her students were absolutely crazy about her and they embraced not only her vibrancy but the authority and accountability she brought to her classroom. She truly brought to life Mastery’s motto, “Excellence. No Excuses.” Harrity Elementary will honor Jamie’s memory later in the school year.
