My name is Maggie Taylor. I absolutely LOVE teaching!!
There is not one thing that I would rather do than teach.
My love of teaching started at an early age. I was in second
grade when I realized I wanted to be a teacher. My second
grade teacher, Mr. Larry Fields, is the reason I wanted to
become a teacher. His love for his students and learning was
contagious! I pray that I can make the same impact on the
lives of the children that I teach as he did on mine.
I received my Bachelors Degree in Early Childhood Education
from the University of South Carolina and my Masters in Early
Childhood from the University of Phoenix. This will be my 23nd
year teaching. I previously taught Pre-K and kindergarten in SC.
I began teaching at Eastside Elementary for the last 17 years go. I spent
14 years teaching 1st grade, 1 year as an EIP teacher, and 1 year in Kindergarten.
This will be my first year at Cherokee, and I am beyond excited about it!
I am a single mom of one son, AJ. AJ is a graduate of RHS
and studied culinary in San Fransisco. I am a huge college
football fan, and will wear ORANGE and/or PURPLE on Fridays and Saturdays.
I am a Clemson fan; I love regardless if they are winning or losing
(I prefer winning though). I also enjoy playing volleyball, tennis, and
spending time at the beach.
I love teaching and am thrilled to be working with your child this year. I want
your child to love school as much I as I did so I will do my best to
make learning fun. It is my goal to open their eyes and minds to new
things every day. I am excited about getting to know you and your
child. I am looking forward to a fun and exciting year.
