Ms. Michelle Tucker
Hi! I’m Michelle Tucker and I am THRILLED to be a 2nd grade teacher at Bryan Road! I grew up in Utah, lived in Arizona for 10 years where I taught Pre-K, and then moved to Garner in 2018 to start a new adventure! I'm married to my high school sweetheart, Jack, and we have 3 amazing kids: Logan (16), Charley (11), and Nora (6). I love to craft, read, work in my yard, and snuggle our goldendoodles Oliver and Archie.
I earned my Bachelor’s degree in Elementary Education with a fine arts emphasis from Utah State University in 2007. I've been involved with Bryan Road since its opening in many roles: as a member of the PTA exec board, instructional assistant, and 3rd grade teacher. 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 super 2nd graders!
