Welcome to Ms. Taylor's Teacher Page
I just finished my 11th year teaching, all but one of those years being in 4th grade. This has been my 5th year at Lorenzo Manor. I am married and have an almost 2 year old son. He keeps me on my toes! In my not-so-abundant free time, I love to garden, cook and bake, crochet and craft, and travel. I love my job and am excited every year to start the adventure with a new group of students.
I am both inspired by my students and by my colleagues. Every year, students inspire me with their amazing ideas and their passions. I love getting to know my kids and learning what inspires them! I work with amazing teachers at Lorenzo Manor. Their creativity in their instruction and their care for their students is inspiring!
After graduating from Arroyo HIgh School here in San Lorenzo, I went to the University of California, Davis, where I majored in Evolutionary Anthropology and minored in Education. From there, I went to Saint Mary’s College of California earning my Multiple Subject Teaching Credential. I relocated from California to New Mexico for a brief time, and while there I attended the University of New Mexico where I earned a Master’s Degree in Elementary Education, graduating with honors.
