Former P.E. teacher to take the reins July 1.
When the next school year starts at Nantahala School, students will be greeted by a new principal, but not an unfamiliar face. James Bryan, who has been a P.E. teacher at the school for more than 12 years, took over as principal effective July 1.
While the new position signals a big career shift for Bryan, who has spent 19 of his 21 professional years in Western North Carolina, he says that having worked with the staff and students at the school for so long gives him a lot of confidence.
