My Name Ms. Taylor O'Connor. I am a graduate of ASU with a degree in elementary education and a background in computer science and computer informatics. I have taught 3rd grade for quite some time now, and I don't plan on changing that! I am a happy cat mom, and am working towards owning a home to welcome more furry friends into the family.
I absolutely adore being a teacher, but what I also enjoy is video games and reading. My mother instilled a love for video games in me when I was about 5 years old, and it has become a huge part of who I am. Thanks to that love, I have built my own computer from scratch! My passion for reading is just as big, and I have a very well recognized book club with my friends, and one here at Cortina, too!
I'm a pretty transparent person, and I truly believe that everyone has a purpose, as long as they are honest with themselves, and others. I hold myself to that standard daily, and I look to the others around me to try to do the same. There is so much that goes on in one's life, and I believe I'm here to guide others on their journey to becoming the best that they can be!
