Mrs. Lani Bryan
I am so excited about teaching 4th grade at SRES again this year! I absolutely love the students at this age - they are growing by leaps and bounds and love to learn! This is my 3rd year teaching 4th grade and my 11th year at SRES (I previously taught 5th grade here). In all, I have been teaching for 20 years!
One of my passions is teaching math. I am constantly challenging myself by learning new ways to make math more interesting and fun for my students. I'm very excited to be able to attend a National Math conference in Washington DC this year, where I hope to learn many practical ways to reach all students and help them to love math as much as I do!
This is also my 13th year being a leader of the Battle of the Books reading contest. Although this is a 5th grade event, students need to be prepared as early as possible to be able to participate in this exciting activity. Instilling a love of reading in students is something that is very important to me.
I consider teaching my greatest passion. Second to that would be spending time being active. In my spare time I love hiking, biking, skiing, paddleboarding, working out and anything else that keeps me moving! I am also an avid reader who loves to chill with a book and a good cup of coffee. My husband Bruce and I live in Monument and have two grown sons.
This year is going to be amazing. I can't wait to get started!
