Mrs. Wendy Bryan

I was born in Dayton, Ohio.  I grew up in Clark County and lived in a small town by the name of New Carlisle. I was 16 when my family moved to Tennessee; I graduated from Gatlinburg-Pittman High School in 1980.

My husband and I have five children and several precious grandchildren. Three of my grandchildren attend Pi Beta Phi Elementary School.

During my teaching career I have lovingly spent 32 years as a classroom teacher in grades 1-5 and most recently as the Read 180 teacher at Sevierville Intermediate. I moved to Pi Beta Phi to teach 3rd Grade in the fall of 2018.
My goal is to help struggling readers love books and reading as much as I do.

As a family, we enjoy visiting new places and cultures.
Over the years, we have traveled or cruised to Alaska, Asia, Europe, and the Caribbean.

I also enjoy camping, sitting on the beach, spending time with my family, and of course reading all types of books!

I grew up in the Pittman Center area of Sevier County and attended Pittman Center Elementary School through the eighth grade.  Then I spent my high school years at Gatlinburg Pittman High School.  I graduated from Maryville College with a degree in Child Development.  I earned my Master's degree in Curriculum and Instruction from Lincoln Memorial University.  I also have an Education Specialist degree in Administration from Lincoln Memorial University.  I taught at Pigeon Forge Primary for one year.  For the last nineteen years, I have enjoyed teaching children at Pi Beta Phi.  Both of my children are alumni of Pi Phi.  I love this school!  I am blessed to teach and work with such a caring, smart, creative staff in a community that is always willing to help and support our school.

I have a daughter who is a pediatrician and a son who is in Forestry. 

I enjoy hiking in our beautiful Great Smoky Mountains National Park, learning about nature, working out, skiing, running, cooking and eating, biking, and reading. It's always a joy in my life to have the opportunity to spend time with my children in the classroom and my own kids, as well!
