Ms. Taylor

Hello! My name is Ms. Taylor, and I am currently a fifth-grade teacher in Glenview! This upcoming school year will be my sixth year teaching! I grew up on the Northwest side of Chicago and still live in the city. I earned my bachelor's degree in advertising at the University of Illinois at Urbana-Champaign. After college, I participated in an AmeriCorps program called City Year. During this experience, I worked for one year in a school tutoring fifth graders in reading and social-emotional learning. After that experience, I fell in love with tutoring, mainly helping students learn to love reading. I decided to apply to a program where I could earn my master's degree in teaching. I attended National Louis University and earned my Masters in Teaching. While earning my master's, I simultaneously taught in a fifth-grade reading classroom for one year. Since then, I have taught fourth grade for four years at a school in the city, and now I am finishing up my fifth year of teaching at a school in Glenview.  I am also trained in the Orton Gillingham approach. Outside of teaching, I love to read and spend time outdoors with my family, dog, and friends! My teaching philosophy is belief in the power of young people. I exemplify this philosophy in my everyday work by building meaningful connections with my students. All students can succeed when they are given an equitable chance at an education. I do this daily by differentiating instruction and creating rigorous, culturally relevant, standards-based lessons. I have seen the difference that connections with students can make in their growth, academically and as future citizens of the world. In my classroom, my goal is to make sure that every child thinks of themselves as smart. I constantly encourage students to adopt a growth mindset to build their perseverance. I look forward to beginning a career with JAM Teaching and Consulting to continue my teaching philosophy and help foster students' love of learning!
