Bryan Clendenin is a founding teacher at the Franklin School of Innovation. He is an experienced public educator of ten years and is excited about bringing his experiential ideas to FSI. He creates lessons that bring history alive in the classroom through inquiry and analysis while correlating the past to current day issues in the surrounding community and global society.
Bryan uses technology and project based learning in the classroom to guide students towards the path of becoming active citizens in their communities. He is grateful to be a lead teacher at FSI and looks forward to building a positive experience for all of his students and the community.
Bryan received his Bachelor of Arts in Social Studies education from Marshall University and his Master’s degree in Instruction and Curriculum from the University of Colorado at Boulder. When he’s not in the classroom, Bryan spends his free time with his wife and daughter, running the many trails in the Asheville area, and playing his mandolin morning, day, and night.
