I am the English Department Chair, an ELA, and Journalism teacher at UGHS.  I started at UGHS in the fall of 2021.

Before coming to Union Grove, I served in the U.S. Army, in law enforcement, a business owner, and a college administrator and full-time faculty member.  

I am married and have two sons.  

I love cooking and photography.

I look forward to teaching you or your student.

  • In all of Dr. Reese's classes, students are to conduct themselves at all times by the principles of the Wolverine Way: Unity, Grit, Helpfulness, and Self-Respect.  Students will be held to the policies and procedures of the Henry County School System and Union Grove High School, including the following:

    • If a student has not crossed the threshold of the classroom before the bell rings, they are tardy. 
    • Students will place all their phones in the caddy before the bell rings to begin class.  
    • Students need to come to class having gone to the restroom.  Restroom passes are only for extreme emergencies.
    • Students will respect one another by never interrupting one another during class discussions or insulting one another.
    • Students will show respect for the administration, teachers, and substitute teachers at all times.  
    • Students will not get out of their seats while the teacher is lecturing.
