Ms. Emily Byrd

Hello Buccaneer Families!

My name is Emily Byrd and I am thrilled to be part of the Crew at Bryan Road!

I grew up in Eastern North Carolina and attended Meredith College where I received my K-6 Certification in Elementary Education and a Bachelors of Science degree in Psychology. After student teaching in Wake County, I decided to spread my wings and moved to Richmond, Virginia where I taught for 15 years. Last year I relocated to get back to my roots and officially became a Buccaneer! 

Growing up, I always dreamed of being a teacher and consider it both an honor and a privilege to spend my days teaching and inspiring children. Each day, I strive to make my classroom a fun, engaging place where students feel safe, loved, and challenged to reach their highest potential.

When I’m not at school, you can find me hanging out with my sweet lab girl, Sunny, or spending time with family and friends. I also enjoy the outdoors, staying active, reading a good book, and beginning each day with a cup of coffee! 

I look forward to partnering with families and developing strong relationships with students to make this school year one that is full of exciting learning adventures.

Welcome aboard first mates! Together we’ll go for the GOLD!
