Mrs. Kimberly Reese

I am so humbled and excited to serve as your principal at Pinewood. I am looking forward to working with the amazing staff, students and community!  As an A+ school, we will continue to strive to integrate all of the arts into each piece of our curriculum.  Our staff and students will continue to strive to stay SHARP!

I am originally from Pittsburgh, PA. I earned my Bachelor's degree in Elementary Education from Slippery Rock University of Pennsylvania.  Upon completion of that program, I moved to Gastonia to begin my teaching career. I taught elementary grades for eight years.  Next, I spent four years serving as an Instructional Facilitator, earning my Masters degree in School Administration and Leadership from Capella University.  I then served as an Assistant Principal for four years before being named principal at Pinewood.  

I am married to my wonderful husband, Ben.  We have a daughter, Ava and a black lab, Sugar.  In our free time, we enjoy spending time with extended family and going to the beach!
