Barbara is a Nationally Certified School Psychologist (retired), a past member of the American Association of University Women, a graduate of the Grantsmanship Training Program, and was awarded the Legion of Honor Award – Chapel of the Four Chaplains.
Dr. Reider served as Chairperson for the Education Department at The College of Santa Fe from 1991 through June 2001. She attained the rank of full Professor and upon her retirement was honored with the rank of Professor Emeritus. In the capacity of Chairperson, she oversaw all departmental functions and directly supervised all full and part-time faculty. She also initiated, developed, and implemented the Master of Arts in Education degree program with cutting-edge focus on at-risk youth. This program’s extensive reach prepared graduate students from remote locations within New Mexico as well as the Santa Fe campus. Committed to serving at-risk youth, Barbara worked with the New Mexico Suicide Intervention Project (NMSIP), an organization providing direct counseling for families with children at risk and was instrumental in growing their impact exponentially with a training program for school and community counselors.
In addition to her supervisory, teaching, and administrative responsibilities, she created, in partnership with her faculty, an elementary school education collaborative with Santa Fe Public Schools. Incorporating multiple intelligences and integrated curriculum within multi-level classrooms, this model program served a diverse group of students.

She has also been an Assistant Professor at Temple University School of Social Administration, a member of the field faculty of the University of Pennsylvania School of Social Work and Goddard College, and clinical instructor at Hahnemann Medical University Department of Mental Health Sciences.
