Ms. Gina Taylor, Second Grade Teacher
My name is Gina Taylor and I have taught at Renaissance since August 2017! Previous to joining REMS, I taught in Douglas County for four years as a Learning Specialist for students with significant needs. Although I adore special education, I wanted to expand my own knowledge and expertise, which led me to Renaissance!
I am a firm believer in fostering a true classroom community. I relish collaborative relationships with students and families alike, as both are invested in our crew. Every learner has unique needs and learning styles that need to be met. I take pride in my ability to provide those necessities in order to keep students engaged and learning at their highest potential.
After long breaks and family visits, you will notice my Chicago accent quite a bit more! I grew up in the southwest suburbs of Chicago and am a White Sox fan (and anyone who beats the Cubs - Go Rockies)! I hold a Bachelor's in Special Education, a Master's in Educational Administration, and an endorsement in Early Childhood Education.
I live close by with my two fur babies, Brinley and Zoey, and like to do anything they can be a part of- going to the dog park, rollerblading, paddle boarding, camping, or going out for ice cream!
I am looking forward to growing with you and your child this school year!
