Congratulations, to Bryann Burgess and her family!


“Your journey never ends. Life has a way of changing things in incredible ways.”

-Alexander Volkov

Without all of you.... this would be impossible...

A special thanks to Kindermusik International, for creating such wonderful teaching materials and classroom materials for us to learn and grow from, and to share with others the magic of how 'a good beginning' never ends.

Thank you to CarolinaLIFE, and the folks at the University of South Carolina for your support and guidance throughout this continuing process. Without you, this opportunity wouldn't exist.

Also, thank you to the parents and teacher staff at Harmony School, who so graciously shared their children with us so the spirit of the class could be captured, paired hand in hand with Bryann's passion for life, learning, and teaching.

Congratulations, Bryann! You are truly an inspiration to us all, and your passion and love for learning is outstanding. Thank you for bringing your authenticity to class, for becoming the beautiful young lady you were created to be, and thank you for teaching from the utmost compassion and from your heart for these children.

To Bryann's parents....a huge thank you to you, who have shared in this incredible journey with Bryann longer than anyone else. You are the true heroes, here. And we congratulate you both, on raising a beautiful, outstanding, and very talented daughter.

Congratulations, Bryann!! You are outstanding!!
