Ms. Nakisha Winston

Greetings Reid Ravens!

I joined G.H. Reid Elementary School in 2006 as a Math Specialist. I later transitioned into an Assistant Principal here at G.H. Reid in 2013. My career in education began at E.S.H. Greene Elementary, where I taught 3rd grade for five years.

I grew up in Ashland, Virginia and attended Hanover County Public Schools. I am a graduate of Patrick Henry High School. I received an undergraduate degree from Virginia Commonwealth University in Psychology. I earned a Master’s in Elementary Education with an endorsement in Educational Administration and Autism Spectrum Disorder from Virginia Commonwealth University. I have completed all coursework and am currently writing my dissertation through a doctoral program with Grand Canyon University.

I view a collaborative school environment as the key to creating successful teachers and students. I believe partnerships with parents and community partners are essential to enriching the experience at G.H. Reid Elementary.

During my free time, I enjoy watching movies, walking my dog, shopping, and spending time with my son, LaVar.
