Requiring High Expectations From Everyone

Greetings Bryan Elementary School Family!

I am delighted to serve as the new principal of Bryan Elementary School for the 2022-2023 school year. It is going to be an amazing year of teaching, learning, and growing. At the Home of the Patriots, we prioritize building healthy, collaborative relationships with members of the school community. We aim to ensure high expectations are set for all scholars and they are provided with relevant and engaging learning experiences that allow them to not only build knowledge, but also character through social emotional learning. Lastly, we will go above and beyond to ensure every scholar is given the right tools, supports, and resources to meet and exceed his or her potential. Again, I am honored and privileged to serve the scholars and families of Jane H. Bryan Elementary School and I look forward to us all having a positive, productive, and successful school year! Go Patriots!
