Ms. Michelle Tucker

Hi!  I’m Michelle Tucker and I am THRILLED to be teaching 3rd grade at Bryan Road!  I grew up in Utah, lived in Arizona for 10 years, and then moved to Garner in 2018 to start a new adventure!  I am married to my high school sweetheart, Jack, and we have 3 amazing kids: Logan (14), Charley (9), and Nora (4).  I love to craft, read, work in my yard, and snuggle our goldendoodle Oliver.


I earned my Bachelor’s degree in Elementary Education with a fine arts emphasis from Utah State University in 2007.  I taught Pre-K for 7 years, and was a special ed IA last year at Bryan Road.  I’ve also been very involved in our school’s PTA since we opened, serving as PTA Vice-President, Secretary, and Cultural Arts Representative.  I’ve wanted to be a teacher since I was very young...I was the girl who played school all day and gave her imaginary students names, personalities, and report cards...I even charged the neighborhood parents to send their children to my house for “school”.  This is truly a dream come true.  I believe in a high energy classroom, where we are a family, and students have ownership of their learning.  I think consistency is important, while also being flexible and meeting individual needs.  Communication and partnership with family is key to our success!  I can’t wait to meet all of my 3rd grade friends!
