Mrs. Lani Bryan

I am so excited to be teaching 5th 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! We have so many fun and exciting things that we will be doing this year, including the best fieldtrip ever.....Camp Elim!
My classroom was the pilot classroom for an IPAD based STEM (Science, Technology, Engineering, and Math) curriculum called Project Lead the Way. We will be using that curriculum again this year to teach some computer programming skills as well as a fun science unit on infections. The students absolutely loved this last year and I know they will again this year as well!
I also co-lead the Battle of the Books program for 5th graders with Mrs. Bedell.  Our teams have performed extremely well for the last several years in the regional battles (3rd and 4th out of about 150 teams) and number 1 in the district! We encourage everyone who loves to read and is committed to the challenge of reading 40 books this year to join our team!
On a personal note, I consider teaching my passion, but so is spending time with my family - my husband Bruce and our sons Derek and Adam.  We are a family who loves to spend time outdoors. We love hiking, biking, skiing, camping, and anything else that is active!
I'm looking forward to another fun and exciting year!
