Mrs. Jen Bryan

I've was a substitute teacher for WCPSS for 7 years. I've worked in various grades and subjects during that time. I attended Western Governors University and studied Interdisciplinary Studies K-8. I'm an avid reader and love "chick lit" and history books. I love watching my Carolina Panthers and Coach Cutcliffe and the Duke Blue Devils football in the fall. During the winter you will find me watching Coach K and my Blue Devils. I'm a die-hard Lakers fan and I have been since a kid. During the spring and summer, I cheer on the Atlanta Braves. I'm married to my high school sweetheart and have 2 kiddos. My oldest, Hunter Elizabeth, is a sophomore at App State and my youngest, Cameron Dean, is in 9th grade. I attended WCPSS from K-12 when I was a kid. I attended Wake Forest Elementary and Wake Forest-Rolesville Middle and Senior High schools.

I'm #StoughProud because: Stough is very much a family and they have amazing students.
