Welcome to what is going to be an amazing school year here at Taylor Hicks. This is my first year as the principal of Taylor Hicks and I am beyond excited to be a Bobcat! I have been in education for over 13 years and have been a teacher, instructional coach, and an administrator over the course of these years. My passion has always been and will continue to be, helping children and teachers grow in learning. We are excited to have a wonderful year partnering with our staff, students, families and community for the 2022-2023 school year.
Growing up in Prescott, I know what it means to be a Prescottonian! I have felt so welcomed and blessed to be a Bobcat in the Taylor Hicks Family. I have three boys and love to watch them grow in their own way. You can most often find me on the sidelines of sports games and practices or coaching their teams.
As we look to our future at Taylor Hicks, we can see that we will continue to grow and develop foundational skills for all students to become successful, lifelong learners and community builders. We believe "Every bobcat matters, every moment counts" and we do this through Capturing Kids Hearts. Capturing Kids’ Hearts is a process used by schools across the nation to build stronger relationships with students. The primary focus of CKH is to develop healthy relationships and teach effective skills that help students increase self-management, increase positive behaviors, reinforce emotional intelligence, increase classroom rapport, develop empathy, and increase motivation.
I look forward to the upcoming school year and continuing to create relationships with all of the students and families of Taylor Hicks Elementary School.
