Mrs. Taylor

Hello! I'm Mrs. Taylor and I am so excited to be a part of the extraordinary team of educators at James L. Day Middle School. This is my third year at DMS, but I've been an educator for 27 years. I can't imagine a career I'd enjoy more than working with students each day 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 7th-grade Defender. 

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!
