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.
This is my 2nd year in Aledo ISD as a teacher, but I also have Bearcat roots. 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. Prior to coming to Walsh , I 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 seven states. I play bass and guitar and enjoy trivia games of all kinds.
