Mrs. Carrie Taylor

Hello and welcome families to Kindergarten at Painted Sky Elementary! I am Carrie Taylor and have been teaching since 2010. I teach all the fundamental basic skills in Kindergarten and believe every child deserves to learn.

Defining Moment in Education

Growing up, my mother and aunt were teachers and I loved nothing more than helping them in their classroom and creating new materials for them to use. When I had a preschool buddy in fourth grade, I loved seeing children learn and the "light bulb" come on.

Core Educational Belief

I believe all children should be given a quality education in a respectful environment. Children have different learning styles and all will be met and explored in Kindergarten. Through hands-on materials and repetitive practice, children will explore many different subject areas.

Prior Experience

I taught first grade for five years another school in Tucson, AZ and am happy to be back in Kindergarten, where I student taught.
