Afternoon Keynote Educator

Daniel Bryant is an energetic and accomplished art educator in South Carolina, USA at Dorchester County School District 2’s Oakbrook Elementary School and was the district’s 2021 Teacher of the Year. Daniel is also an OATK12 team leader and has brightened many a teacher’s day with his short videos that take a humorous look at teaching and spread joy. Bryant was born and raised in Summerville, South Carolina, graduating from Stratford High School and received his undergraduate degree in youth ministry from Charleston Southern University where he also minored in art. He later attended the College of Charleston, majoring in studio art, and received departmental honors in recognition of his distinguished performance in the field. Creating a copious array of art animation projects in his spare time, Bryant came up with the idea for the mini series, “The Boys of Valor,” as well as “Karate Dawgs,” focusing on the self esteem of children. Bryant’s love for children is also evident in his after school mentoring program where he sacrifices his personal time after work to mentor at risk boys in the areas of science, technology, and sports. He works to instill character and integrity in them, as well as the value of respecting themselves and others.
