About the Teacher & Contact Info

Name: Lori Taylor

Grade: Third Grade

Dear Parents,


            My name is Lori Taylor, and I will be your child’s 3rd grade teacher for the 2012-2013 school year.  I would like to introduce myself a little further to you.

            I received my Bachelor’s of Arts Degree and certification from Western Michigan University in 1987.  I also completed my Master’s Degree in the area of Reading in 1992 at W.M.U.  This will be my 26th year in the classroom.  I’ve taught 2nd, 3rd, 4th and 5th grades for Portage Public Schools.

I live in Portage (Texas Township) with my husband Greg and our two daughters.  Mallori is 19 years old.  This is her 2nd year away at college.   Cassidy is 15 years old and is a sophomore at Central High School this year.  I enjoy spending time with my family, gardening, walking my dog, reading, and I enjoy all kinds of music.

            I’m sure 3rd grade will be a year of growth and change!  By working as a team we can ensure the best learning environment for your child.  I look forward to becoming better acquainted with you very soon.  Our school wide Open House is scheduled for September 13th.  I will give you more detailed information about our classroom at that time.  I’m looking forward to meeting all of you!
