Hi, my name is Bryan Bahns. I am a Third grade teacher at Vern Patrick and I am in my 11th year as a teacher. I taught first grade for my first three years, second grade for two, 3rd grade for 4 years, a 2/3 blend for 1 year and now I am teaching 3rd grade again. I was born and raised in Sherwood, Oregon, a small community twenty minutes Southwest of Portland. I moved to Central Oregon in 2003 with my wife and three dogs. We now have a seven year-old son. When I am not teaching, I love to spend time with my family, work in the yard, play golf, and fish. I am a huge fan of the Beavers, the Red Sox, and the Chargers.
