My name is Courtney Taylor and this is my sixth year teaching. I began teaching preschool in Chicago in 2014 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 after being absent for 11 years have recently moved back to spend more time with my three siblings, seven nieces and nephews, and my parents. When I’m not at work, I love spending time with my friends, exploring new places, and reading. I’m so happy to finally be back home and am so excited to be teaching at KCIA!
