Ms. Nicole Bryan

Hi!  My name is Nicole Bryan.  I am a special education instructional teacher for grades 4 and 5 at Murphy; this is my 9th year teaching in the district! For 7 years, I was a special education resource teacher for grades 3, 4, and 5 at Beach.


I am so happy to be at Murphy and share my expertise and love for teaching with a new group of staff and students. Prior to teaching, I attended school at Illinois State University where I earned my BS in Education degree with a focus in Special Education.  More recently, I earned my MA in Education in Special Education Leadership in 2018. Presently, I am working on my second Master's Degree in Illinois Principal Preparation.


In my free time, I enjoy baking, reading, walking my dog Piper, spending time with family and friends, and exercising.  If you should have any questions or concerns, please contact me by phone or email.
