Debra Bryant teaches physical education at Lejeune High School, Camp Lejeune, North Carolina. Her B.S. in Health, Physical Education and Recreation was awarded to her from Jamestown College, North Dakota, and her M.A. in Exercise Sports Science from East Carolina University. She states, "Every child is unique and should have the opportunity to learn, to grow, to experiment, to be successful, to have fun and to be creative in a safe environment. I believe that the integration of physical education across the curriculum can complement other academic areas by helping kinesthetic learners participate more fully in the classroom." Her assistant principal writes, "She is an interesting and motivating teacher who sets the tone for her students to excel in learning. She strives to challenge them and incorporate real-life, authentic lessons daily."
