My name is Courtney Taylor and this is my ninth year teaching. I began teaching preschool in Chicago while working on my Masters degree and transitioned to teaching kindergarten in the fall of 2017. I have my undergraduate degree in photography and art history from the Art Institute of Colorado where I lived for 6 years before moving to Chicago to get my graduate degree in teaching. I am originally from Kansas City and enjoy spending time with my three siblings, seven nieces and nephews, and my parents. When I’m not at work, I love spending time with all of my pets, my boyfriend, my friends, exploring new places, crocheting, and reading. I’m so happy to be continuing to work and grow at KCIA!
