Degrees and Certifications:

Ms. Vanessa Kuzmin

Hello Bryan Road Elementary Families! My name is Vanessa Kuzmin and I am so proud and excited to have become a Buccaneer. I have been teaching for 16 years. My undergraduate degree is from Florida International University and I have a Masters in Curriculum and Instruction from Grand Canyon University. I taught kindergarten for 15 years and third grade for one year. I enjoy working with children and want to help them love their educational journey. 

I live with my husband Peter, my daughter Hannah, my dog Lulu, and my bunny Brownie. We have been here in North Carolina for five years and love it. On my time off I enjoy journaling, watching movies, reading, gardening and baking. I absolutely love animals and enjoy feeding the deer, squirrels and birds that visit our house. I also love being at home and feel blessed to have found such a peaceful spot to live. 

I am grateful to have found this wonderful school and look forward to this new adventure with all the Buccaneers!
