Ms. Emily Byrd
Hi friends! My name is Emily Byrd and I am so thrilled to be joining the Crew at Bryan Road this year! 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 have spent the past 15 years living in Richmond, Virginia teaching some pretty awesome 3rd and 4th graders. I've recently relocated to get back to my roots and can’t wait to become a Buccaneer!I have always wanted to be a teacher and consider it an honor and privilege to spend my days educating and inspiring the future. Each day I strive to make my classroom an engaging place where students feel safe, loved, and challenged to reach their highest potential. I’m also excited about teaching first grade to build foundational skills needed for future learning. I look forward to working with the staff, families, and community to make this year a great success!When I’m not at school with my kiddos you can find me hanging with my sweet lab girl, Sunny or spending time with family and friends. I also enjoy the outdoors, staying active, traveling, and starting the day with a good cup of coffee!I’ve learned, as an educator you’re doing something right when your students don’t want the day to end. :)
Like Dr. Seuss says:“Today was good. Today was fun. Tomorrow is another one.”It will be a year full of wonder and adventure for your child. Together we’ll go for the GOLD!
