Mr. Taylor

I am Mr. Taylor the 5th grade science teacher at Walsh Elementary.   Every 5th grader will spend some part of each academic day with me, and I look forward to getting to know all of my students and their families as the year moves forward.

I may be new to Walsh Elementary, but not to Aledo ISD.  After attending Fort Worth ISD schools through my freshman year, I moved to Aledo High School my sophmore year.  I graduated in 1996, serving as the Aledo High School mascot my senior year.  

After leaving Bearcat Country, I attended Texas Wesleyan University where I earned my B.S. in Communication in 2000.  The next four years I spent on active duty in the United States Air Force as an Electronic Warfare Systems Specialist stationed in Mississippi, Italy, and Utah.  It was here that I began tutoring and mentoring in local schools and discovered that teaching and education might be my calling.  

I began my teaching career following military service and for the past 12 years I have primarily taught 3rd grade ELA and 5th grade science and social studies at Lily B. Clayton Elementary School in Fort Worth ISD.  This experience was very special as I attended Lily B. Clayton from K-5th grade and had the pleasure of working alongside my former teachers. 

My wife, Kristen, and I are both teachers.  We moved to Aledo in October 2017 and love it.  We have three children: Anthony, John, and Paris.  We love to travel and just this summer visited eleven states, Jamaica, Cayman Island, and Mexico.  I play bass and guitar and enjoy trivia games of all kinds.
