Mrs. April Taylor
This will be my 28th year of teaching with the last 23 here at ECES. I am a mother to Kamye,22 and J.T, 16, a junior at Clayton High School. I have a passion for cheerleading and Boy Scouts. I am also a Disney Junkie! I would love to live in Fantasyland with my husband. I enjoy relaxing on the beach, reading a great novel, and spending time with my family.
The theme of our classroom is ¨Peace, Love, and Happiness." It is my hope that my students develop a community that supports one another. I enjoy sharing experiences with my students as I watch them grow throughout the year. Education is so much more than just reading, writing, and arithmetic. My passion is helping students grow into kind, motivated, excited citizens. The goal is to be at peace with the decisions we make, share love with those around us, and be happy with the outcome.

We hope that you and your student have already noticed some of the exciting new food and meal opportunities we are offering in our cafeterias this school year. Our new options will include more fresh produce, vegetarian options, and opportunities for students to customize their meal choice. These new offerings will be available at both breakfast and lunch.
