Jenny Taylor

Hi! My name is Jenny Taylor and I just finished my 15th year teaching.   I am so excited to be joining the Grafton Village community after teaching the past four years at Widewater.  Prior to that I also taught in Prince William County.   I graduated from Mary Washington College with a degree in early/middle education and am currently working on a degree in Reading from George Mason University.  I am married and have 2 kiddos of my own.  My son will be a third grader and my daughter will be in Kindergarten this year, here at Grafton Village.   In my free time I love to exercise/train for obstacle races, read, and spend time outdoors with family.  

Teaching first grade is my passion!  I love the ages of 6 and 7 and the urgency and excitement they have for learning and school.  I firmly believe that school should be a "home away from home" where making mistakes in a safe and loving environment leads to a lifelong love of learning.   My favorite teaching quote:  "They may forget what you said, but they will not forget how you made them feel".
