Mrs. Kaylee Taylor (Cook)
Welcome! I was raised right down the road in the small military town of Hinesville, Georgia. I attended college at Georgia Southern University in Statesboro, Georgia, where I earned my Bachelor's degree in Business Administration and a minor in Spanish. I am currently working towards my graduate degree, Master of Arts in Teaching, with a concentration in Middle Grades English Language Arts. The 2022-2023 school year will be my third year of teaching and third year at Ebenezer Middle School.
My philosophy for teaching includes a mix of old-school manners whilst creating and fostering caring relationships with students.
We will work on mastering the Eighth Grade English Language Arts Georgia Standards of Excellence for this class. We will do so by promoting a positive and fresh learning environment with a rigorous yet effective pace. By the end of the class, students will have grown their skills socially and academically. This class will focus on the four main elements of reading, writing, speaking, and listening. These elements will transfer well into life inside and outside of this class. I hope for each student to strengthen these four elements through the course lessons. Google Classroom and other digital programs will be utilized.
When I am not teaching, I spend my days at home with my husband Tyler, our cat Twiggy, our dog Dunn, and our backyard chickens. In my free time away from grading essays or working on my graduate school work, I can be found working out at the gym, crafting, or reading!
Besides my family, the things I enjoy most in life are coffee, pizza nights, afternoon thunderstorms, and coffee again.
I look forward to a GREAT school year with you!
