Degrees and Certifications:
Hi! My name is Kelly Taylor and I am new to the arctic, new to the district, but not new to teaching. This will be my 13th year of teaching. I taught in Prince George's County Maryland for 6 years as a Head Start Teacher. I then moved back to my home state of Ohio and taught 6 years in various grades including pre-k-3rd. I received my bachelor's in Early Childhood Education from Shawnee State University in Portsmouth, Ohio. While teaching in Maryland I received my Master's degree from the University of Phoenix in Teacher Leadership.
I have been married for 30 years to my best friend and I have two sons. I have always wanted to live in Alaska from a very young age, and now I have made my dream come true. I enjoy reading, painting, and playing a variety of video games. I also love to fish and cannot wait for the opportunity to try my luck. I am excited to begin my new life!
