Meet the Principal - Woodstock MS - Tia Bryller 7 28 21

Our Principals are dedicated leaders, and we’ll be introducing you over the coming days to Principals who are new to the role or who are serving at new schools this year.  Please help us celebrate Tia Bryller, who this school year will begin leading Woodstock Middle School!

Woodstock Middle School Principal Tia Bryller is a new face in the Woodstock Zone, but she knows middle school by heart.

“My goal this year is to continue to promote a positive school culture that fosters a love of learning and high levels of student growth,” she said.    

A 17-year educator, Principal Bryller has served the entirety of her career teaching and leading middle schoolers.  She began as a math and science middle school teacher in Carroll County where she earned an Outstanding American Teachers Award, moved to East Cobb Middle School where she earned the Teacher of the Year title and then advanced to serving as an assistant principal for two Cobb middle schools. 

Principal Bryller joined CCSD last school year as an assistant principal at E.T. Booth Middle School and completed the Superintendent’s Leadership Academy III in preparation for a possible Principal post.  That appointment came this spring, as Superintendent of Schools Dr. Brian V. Hightower saw in Principal Bryller the perfect match for Woodstock Middle School.

“We were thrilled that Tia chose to join CCSD, as she brought with her very valuable experience as a middle school administrator,” Dr. Hightower said.  “When the Woodstock MS Principal post opened, there was no doubt that Tia would be a great fit.  She combines her strong instructional knowledge and background in STEM, which is an important focus for the Woodstock Zone with the recent state STEM certification for Woodstock High School, with experience in creating a schoolwide character education program and a big heart for these kids.”

Principal Bryller and her husband, Doug, moved to Cherokee County 10 years ago and look forward to getting to know their new Woodstock Middle School family.  They have two children in CCSD schools, and their third soon will be old enough to join his siblings.

“I am most looking forward to meeting our students and families,” she said.  “I cannot wait to create new partnerships as we work together to provide our students with a quality learning environment and continual support from our school community.” 

Principal Bryller earned her bachelor and master’s degrees in middle school education, and an educational specialist degree in school leadership from the University of West Georgia.
How can parents be more involved?  “We welcome our parents to participate in school events, family nights, music performances, and other activities held both on and off campus when they can,” Principal Bryller said.  “Parents can also join PTSA or School Council.  There is something for everyone!  We welcome our parents as they are an integral part of the team.   I also encourage parents to talk with their student(s) about their day, check in regarding assignment completion, and overall academic process.”
