Who is Mrs. Taylor?
I have been teaching at New Albany Schools since 2003. I started my journey here as a long-term substitute for Mrs. Leslie Ropp in a third-grade classroom. That summer, I was hired as a 5th-grade teacher where I taught math, science, and social studies. During my 20 years at New Albany, I have also taught reading and writing. However, my true passion is science!
Before coming to New Albany, I graduated from a school in Rochester, Michigan - Oakland University - with a Bachelor’s of Education with a focus on science. In 2006, I earned my Master’s degree from Marygrove College.
I was born and raised in Michigan (as many of you refer to the state up north). After I graduated from Oakland University, I moved to Ohio to be with my husband, who was attending school at The Ohio State University. My husband and I have two beautiful children, Avery. (a Senior in High School) and Allie (a Sophomore in High School), who also attend New Albany Schools. Additionally, we have two cats, Jinx and Danger.
When I am not at school, I am usually with Allie at dance/cheerleading or with Avery playing video games or biking. I also started teaching 2-5 year olds dance at Broadway Bound Dance Center. It is so fun to watch little ones develop their love for dance. I also love spending time at my home with my family, swimming, walking, biking, and playing boardgames! In the fall, I love to watch football; and yes, I am a Michigan fan-let the harassing begin!
