Mrs. Pam Reynolds
Special Education Teacher
My name is Pam Reynolds, and I’m so excited to join Shepard midyear as a Special Education Teacher. I was born and raised until I was 13 in Oak Cliff. After my 8th grade year, we moved to San Antonio where I attended all four years of high school and earned my Associate of Arts in general studies from San Antonio College. After completing my Associate's degree, I moved back to the Dallas area where I began working full-time in the insurance industry. During my 20-plus career in insurance, I worked in Worker's Compensation claims and medical bill review prior to landing at GEICO, where I worked for 15 years, serving as a sales representative, sales coach, sales supervisor, business analyst, and finally, as a corporate trainer. While with GEICO, I also lived in Iowa City, Iowa for almost three years, where I helped open a new office, and I earned my Bachelor of Science in business management from the University of Phoenix while working full-time.
After working in a corporate environment for my entire career, I finally decided to pursue my childhood dream of becoming a teacher. I began to work on obtaining my teaching certificate and working at Plano ISD as a substitute teacher. I initially set out to teach middle school English and worked primarily at Frankford Middle School. Last year, while serving at Hightower Elementary as a long-term Special Education Teacher, I fell in love with working with elementary-aged students with special needs and will be completing my alternative teaching certificate in elementary special education, and I hope to obtain a full-time special education position at Plano ISD in Fall 2023.
I am recently widowed, and my only children are two very spoiled cats named Ava (14) and Gracie (17). In my free time, I enjoy reading, playing board/card games, going to trivia nights, and spending time with my family and friends. I’m also very active at my church where I have taught Sunday school to two-year-old children for over 8 years.
You may contact me on my office phone or email at any time and I will get back to you at my earliest convenience.
My conference time is 12:30 pm - 1:10 pm
