Brandon Reeds spent a year working at Edward Little High School as a substitute before it was revealed he was actually a student.

Substitute teacher Brandon Reeds has always been a hit with the students. He was able to connect with the kids like no other teacher could. This was largely because he is, in fact, a student himself.
Brandon Reeds has been subbing on and off at Edward Little for about one year now and it was just revealed on Monday, March 30, that he was also a member of the senior class.

The reveal was not a major problem for many of the staff. “I honestly didn’t suspect a thing,” said art teacher Richard Dahlqvist. “He seemed just as qualified as the rest of us!”

Reeds had subbed in a number of classes and has received nothing but positive reception from the student body. He was known school-wide for being laid back and cool with his students. He would let children do pretty much whatever they wanted as long as they “kept it on the DL.”

When asked why he decided to assume the role of a substitute, Reeds had this to say: “Well at first it was just a bet. My buddy Jeremy bet me that I didn’t have the balls to grab a lanyard from the teachers lounge. I couldn’t just let him win so obviously I did it. Then some teachers saw me wearing the thing and they had me sub in for Mrs. Margarones and the rest is history.”

School administration was initially furious to find out that they were being duped by a 17 year old and had plans to fire/suspend him but they ultimately decided against it. “I mean, we would have fired him but the numbers don’t lie. He’s pretty good,” said administrator Jim Horn.

At the moment, there is talk of hiring Reeds full time as a teacher, but all plans are on hold until he graduates high school.
