    Dear Taylor Gator Families,

    Hello and welcome to the 2017-18 school year!  I am excited to return to Alyce Taylor and honored to be your new principal.  Alyce Taylor is a place I call home.  In 2010-2012, I served as the Dean of Students at Taylor, which started my educational leadership experience.  I then became the Assistant Principal at Spanish Springs Elementary where I have been for the past five years.  In 2015, I served as Interim Principal at Taylor for the first half of the school year.  Now as principal, I have come full circle and ended up exactly where I was meant to be, right here at Alyce Taylor.

    Alyce Taylor Elementary School stands proud of its rich school traditions, a culture of academic excellence, high expectations, a safe, respectful environment, and an emphasis on kids-first decisions.  I am committed to building a positive school environment where staff members, students, and families are engaged and motivated to come to school each day.  I am excited to announce our school-wide theme this year:

    Think, Do, Be Positive smile face

    (Think Positive, Do Positive, Be Positive)

    This positive, growth-mindset is a powerful message to our students that will teach them to shift their thinking to a more positive outlook.  In doing so, our students develop a positive attitude, creating positive relationships with others, believing in themselves, building confidence and resiliency, ultimately bringing positivity in their lives which will help them become successful individuals.  

    I look forward to getting to know you and your child.  Please do not hesitate to contact me should you have any questions or concerns.  I believe in a strong school-home partnership and communication in order to help our students succeed.

    It’s going to be a positively wonderful year!
