Mrs. Sydney Bracy

My name is Sydney Bracy. I was born and raised in Fort Walton Beach, Florida. After graduating high school, I headed off to college at Auburn University where I received my bachelor’s degree in Elementary Education. I moved back home to begin my teaching career as a kindergarten teacher in Walton County, where I taught for four years. In 2018, I received my Master’s degree in Curriculum and Instruction from the University of West Florida and relocated to Gulf Breeze with my husband. I continued to teach kindergarten for two more years in Santa Rosa County.  For the past three years I was the fifth grade teacher at PBES. 

I am so excited to continue my teaching career as the Literacy Coach teacher here at Pensacola Beach Elementary School! 

This year I am looking forward to helping my students achieve their academic goals while also preparing them to be successful learners.
