Mrs. Bryant is a native of Tampa, Florida. Her roots are deeply grounded in a military background in which most of her family served and sacrificed in various branches of the armed forces. She has had the privilege to travel around the world with friends and family and is excited to continue these adventures as principal at Humphreys Central Elementary School.
In January of 2012, Mrs. Bryant joined DoDEA as a classroom teacher. She moved from North Little Rock, Arkansas to Aguadilla, Puerto Rico. From there, she joined the leadership team as an assistant principal at Stearley Heights Elementary School in Okinawa, Japan. She is accompanied by her husband, Anderson Bryant, Jr. and has a strong support system that is as determined as she is to ensure successful school years for parents and children.
Mrs. Bryant has many years of experience as an educator (traditional classroom and instructional leadership settings); many derived from the great Natural State of Arkansas. She has always been excited to see what education looks like across the globe. DoDEA has provided this opportunity to no longer be a dream, but a reality. She has taught kindergarten through fifth grades. As an administrator, she dedicated three and a half years to a K-12 building.
In the past she has received awards for Teacher of the Year and produced the highest standardized test scores in her building; she has also been given responsibilities such as being used as the first grade model classroom, grade level chair and discipline committee leader. As an administrator, Mrs. Bryant was instrumental in the implementation of a variety of school programs such as a school-wide social skills program, positive behavior management rewards system, community relations and outreach and a host of other feats still being utilized to this date in her previous school building. She was the recipient of an Achievement Medal for Civilian Service from US Army Garrison-Humphreys.
She is a natural born educator and leader who stands on the philosophy that she has the opportunity to impact the world one student at a time. It is her goal to not only meet, but exceed parent and student expectations while working at Humphreys Central Elementary School.
“Treat people as if they were what they ought to be, and you help them become what they are capable of becoming.”
