Nathanael Reed

Born in Kirkland Lake, Ontario, Nathanael Reed grew up in the little northern town of Kenogami. When he was ten years old his family moved to Mattagami First Nations, a remote village in northeastern Ontario, where his father, Jim, taught in the one-room schoolhouse. The family lived in Mattagami for the next four years.

After leaving Mattagami the Reeds settled near Kirkland Lake where Jim continued his teaching career for the local Board of Education. Nathanael attended secondary school in Kirkland Lake and later graduated from Trent University and the University of Toronto, spending 29 years as an elementary school teacher and principal. He is currently on the faculty at the School of Education at Trent University. Nat and his wife, Joyce, have four grown children and seven grandchildren. They make their home in Peterborough, Ontario.

Nathanael has had a number of curriculum units published along with two novels, Thunderbird Gold (JourneyForth Books) and Visions of Eternity (with son, Joel Reed: Gospel Folio Press).
