Mrs. Joy Bryan

My name is Mrs. Bryan and I teach ELA and Social Studies at THE H.J. MacDonald Middle School! I have an M.A. in Teaching from East Carolina University (AAARRRRRRRRGG!) and a B.S. in Psychology from Fayetteville State University. My husband and I have been married for 14 years and we have two children, Katelyn and Henry. Katelyn is a 6th grader at HJM; Henry is in 3rd grade at AHB. As a family, we enjoy baseball games and camping across the country! Last year, we made it all the way to California; this year, we camped in Maine. Teaching, coffee, and DIY projects are a few of my favorite things. Please do not hesitate to contact me at if there is anything I can do for you. We are having a great year at THE HJ!
