Auburn University- Bachelor of Science in Education

National Board Certification

William Carey University- Master's Degree in Gifted Studies


Hi there! My name is Paula Bryan, and I am thrilled to be a part of the Dawes Intermediate family as a PACE teacher. I have been teaching for 20 years. My Bachelor's Degree, with honors, in Elementary Education is from Auburn University (War Eagle). In November 2004, I achieved National Board Certification as a Middle Childhood Generalist through the National Board for Professional Teaching Standards (NBPTS). I also hold a Master's Degree, with honors, in Gifted Studies from William Carey University.

My Jack Russell Terrier, Jax, is a constant source of entertainment for me when I'm not at school. We love to travel, hike, exercise, and spend time with family or friends. There is no job better than teaching. Each day is full of unexpected challenges and rewards. Children are amazing to work with, teach, and watch as they learn. Partnering with parents to build successful life long learners is a goal that I look forward to achieving as I continue getting to know my new family here at Dawes Intermediate. IT IS GREAT TO BE BACK FOR A FOURTH YEAR!
