A new Spanish teacher at MHS has spent his life traveling – from Alaskan mountains through Massachusetts Bryan Styler comes to Georgia. Styler came to McIntosh to teach Spanish.

“I love working with teenagers and young people and I also just adore Spanish culture and the language,” he said.

When he was a high school student, Styler participated in a humanitarian trip to Colombia for two years. It was there he learned how to speak Spanish and learned more about Spanish cultures.

“I also worked with people who were assigned with me that were not from the United States for months on end,” Styler said.

Styler teaches both Spanish I and II students this year. 

“I think he’s cool. He makes teaching fun and he’s definitely interesting,” Alliana Rhodes, a freshman and Spanish I student, said. “He’s very funny. He likes to make things goofy when he’s talking to us.”

“He makes Spanish fun,” Jailyn Portier, Spanish II student, said.
