Mrs. Kelly Bryant
Hello! Welcome to our website and our classroom. My name is Kelly Bryant. I teach Honors Business & Personal Law, Honors Business Management I and II, Honors Microsoft IT Academy A - Word & Powerpoint. I am excited to be teaching new courses, Honors Entrepreneurship I and II at Hibriten and Exploring Career Decisions in the Caldwell Innovative Virtual Academy (CIVA) during the 2020-2021 school year. I am a graduate of Hibriten High School, Caldwell Community College and Technical Institute, and Lenoir-Rhyne University with a Bachelor's Degree in Secondary Business Education. I presently serve as a co-advisor to the Future Business Leaders of America Club and Co-Chair of Senior Class Advisory. I am married to Jonathan Bryant, who teaches in the social studies department at Hibriten. We have a daughter, Hannah, and a son, Walker. I am entering my twenty-sixth year of teaching at Hibriten. I love the teaching profession and Hibriten High School. It is the BEST!!! Parents and students are encouraged to visit on a regular basis to stay informed of classroom activities. I look forward to the 2020-21 school year. My philosophy of education is simple. I believe that all students can and should learn. An effective teacher should be a facilitator of learning. I firmly believe in a hands-on, interactive approach to teaching and learning. I try to incorporate this approach as much as possible into our classroom lesson plans. Thanks for your interest in our webpage and classroom. Please feel free to contact me at firstname.lastname@example.org if you have any questions or concerns.
