Meet Your Assistant Area Manager

Hello! My name is Laquita Reese, and I have been with AlphaBEST Education for three years. I have served as Site Director for Portsmouth, VA, and Suffolk, VA., and I am now your Assistant Area Manager for Portsmouth, VA. I received my associate degree from Tidewater Community College in Early Childhood Development, and I am working towards my entrepreneurship certificate and a business degree at Tidewater Community College. In my free time, I enjoy cooking, writing poems, and spending time with family. Just like AlphaBEST, I believe that our number one goal is putting children first. I apply this not only with AlphaBEST but with my three boys. I think nothing is more important than a young mind's education! I look forward to continuing the partnership with the schools and families, engaging children’s minds, expanding their horizons, and providing parents with a sense of security.
