A little bit about me: Yoda chase.jpg

Hi! My name is Taylor. I was born and still live in Winchester, VA. I have my Bachelors Degree in Studio Art from James Madison University. I'm currently in the PreK-6 licensure only program through ODU. The experiences I've had thus far in this program have made me very excited to begin teaching.

I've been married for 4 years and have an 18 month old son. I'm working full time as a receptionist in addition to classes right now. That doesn't leave much spare time. I enjoy spending the little spare time I do have with my family and friends, running, working out, and reading.

My Philosophy of Education: Me and chase.jpg

Right now I'm very much interested in technology integration in the classroom. When I observe the way in which technology has changed our society in the ten short years since I graduated from high school; It makes me realize that we as future teachers must adapt to the changes to benefit our future students. It is an absolute necessity.

I am also interested in project based learning. When I look back on my education and how I was taught I realize how beneficial project based learning could have been to me. I think it is a method that will be successful with all levels of student learning. I also think that technology integration and project based learning go hand in hand.
