A Michigan native, Barbara Reed moved to Franklin, TN in 1989. Her husband, Alan was transferred in his job as a Saturn Industrial Engineer. They started attending ClearView Baptist Church shortly after they moved.
Barbara graduated from Central Michigan University with a Bachelor of Science in Education (chemistry and mathematics). She worked for Chrysler Corporation for nine years as a Materials Engineer. She enjoyed being a stay-at-home mom while her children were preschoolers, and started teaching at ClearView Children's Center when her youngest went to kindergarten.
This is Barbara's 23rd year of teaching at CCC with two-year-old children. She also loves teaching that age in Sunday school. She loves Jesus and considers it a joy and privilege to teach children about God, Jesus, and the Bible. It is her ministry!
