Welcome back, Junior Jacks! I am thrilled to be teaching fifth grade this year! I received both my Bachelor of Science in Interdisciplinary Studies and my master’s degree in education as a reading specialist from SFA. I have a deep passion for constructivist learning and enjoy exploring concepts with students in innovative ways. I am honored to be a part of the SFA Charter School family. This is going to be a fantastic year!

Meet Ms. Madison Taylor

E-mail: taylormc3@sfasu.edu

My name is Madison Taylor, and I am so excited to be joining the SFA Charter School family! My husband and I graduated from SFA and have loved being a part of the Nacogdoches community. After receiving my Bachelor of Science in Interdisciplinary Studies from SFA, my teaching career began at Nacogdoches Independent School District, where I taught both second and third grade. My passion and love for teaching is driven each and every day by the young minds that come through my classroom. I truly believe that we are all lifelong learners, and I cannot wait to grow with you and your child this year in fifth grade. Axe em, ’Jacks!

I gained my EC-6 alternative certification in 2016, and I taught prekindergarten at Nacogdoches ISD for two years. This will be my third year in kindergarten at the SFA Charter School. I have two daughters, Bridget, who is an SFA Charter School student, and Kellen, an SFA Charter School graduate.

I worked with prekindergarten and kindergarten students as a teacher assistant at Nacogdoches ISD for 15 years. I joined the SFA Charter School family in August 2016. Working in kindergarten is a gratifying experience, and the academic and personal growth the students acquire throughout the year is amazing. I am looking forward to another successful year.
