Hello! My name is Taylor, and I am a sixth-grade math and science teacher at Namaste Charter School in McKinley Park. I grew up in a northwest suburb called Buffalo Grove. In 2014, I graduated with my bachelor’s degree from the University of Illinois Urbana/Champaign in Human Development and Family Studies. I’ve been interested in family dynamics and child development since I started working with kids at age 14.
Upon graduation, I worked in the corporate world in recruiting and sales. As much as I loved working with people, I decided my heart was in teaching. In 2020, I graduated from National Louis University with a degree in Middle-Level Education and an endorsement in English Language Arts. I’m in my second year of teaching and tutoring at Namaste Charter School and working toward a math endorsement.
You can find me going for lake runs, trying new restaurants, and cuddling up with my Cavalier King Charles Spaniel outside of school. I look forward to helping your student achieve their goals and feel confident to succeed in learning and life!
