Praying for the family of Tanya Vasher-Bryant. She will be missed! Touching the lives of so many friends, teachers, students, families and more. I remember how giving she was and always helped everyone. I have a lot of good memories of us working together for Fannin Elementary, Huey Elementary, and Scotland Park. She need everybody and would always offer help whenever I needed it in my classroom and in the community. Dedicated, loving, supportive, a wonderful disciplinarian, beautiful on the inside & outside. I loved Tan and I miss her.

I am saddened by the passing of Ms. Bryant. We worked together at Scotland Park and I could always count on her to help me with my classes. After she retired she subbed for a lot of us on campus. We trusted her and knew we could count on her to keep our kids in line while we were gone. She taught me how to stand up and be a great leader! I will miss seeing that smile and telling her she was crazy while getting a big hug when she was back in the building. I will always remember you and my thoughts and prayers are with your family during this time. We love you Ms. Bryant!

I am so saddened to hear of the passing of Tanya. I considered her a friend. We worked together at Huey and Scotland Park. I talked to her on numerous occasions after she retired. If she was in the building at Scotland Park, she always came down to chat with me. I will miss seeing her smiling face, and our conversations. I loved this lady!
