Mrs. Taylor

Hello! I'm Mrs. Taylor and I am so grateful to be a part of the extraordinary team of educators at James L. Day Middle School. This is my fifth year as an ELA Specialist at DMS, but I've been an educator for 29 years. I can't imagine a career I'd enjoy more than working with students daily to help them recognize and realize their potential. 

I have a B.S. in English Education from Northern Arizona University and a Master's in Curriculum and Instruction from Concordia University, Portland. I am also a Certified Journalism Educator (JEA) who spent 19 years working with students in the area of scholastic journalism and yearbook. On my classroom wall is a sign that reads, "Live a good story." I love helping students find their voices and write the stories they carry. 

I am an avid reader, a lover of the mountains and the coastlines, a wife, and a mom to a 9th-grade TVHS Golden Bear. 

Please feel free to email me with any questions, and be sure to check our Canvas class for updated assignments and activities. I look forward to working with you this year!
