    My name is Taylor Howard. I am very excited to be your child's second grade teacher! Allow me to tell you a little bit about myself. I am 25 years old and a graduate of Mississippi State where I earned a Bachelors Degree in Elementary Education K-6. I was born and raised a Mississippi State fan. I completed my student teaching in 2nd grade at Oakdale Elementary in Rankin County. Prior to attending MSU, I attended Holmes Community College from 2013-2015 where I was named one of several Valedictorians of my graduating class. In my free time, I enjoy spending time with friends and family, as well as traveling. 

    Growing up, I attended Madison County Schools from kindergarten through 12th grade. It is very special to return to the school district that so greatly influenced me to choose education as my profession. In addition to the remarkable teachers I had coming through MCSD, I also have my mom who has been an educator for the past 27 years. 

    One of the most impacting statements I came across during my studies was "Education is not the filling of a pail, but the lighting of a fire." I fully believe in sparking my students' love for learning through hands on, real world activities. Passion for learning comes from being fully immersed in the classroom and opening the door for knowledge to grow. 




    I am looking forward to a year full of laughs, love, and growth. Please feel free to contact me with any questions or concerns you may have, thoward@madison-schools.com
