Degrees and Certifications:
Mrs. Angel Taylor
Welcome to 1st grade in Room 10!
I am thrilled to be part of the Belshaw community! This is my second year at Belshaw after teaching abroad for seven years. I have three children, one of whom is also a teacher in Hawaii. My husband is a kindergarten teacher in the AUSD at Diablo Vista. This is my 18th year teaching. I have taught grades K-2 and spent one year as a reading interventionist for grades K-5. I taught in Jordan, Bangladesh, China, and Indonesia. Before teaching abroad I taught in the Knightsen School District.
In Room 10 we are thinkers, communicators, and open-minded learners. I encourage my students to learn collaboratively and cooperatively and allow multiple opportunities for exploration when learning new concepts. This year I am excited about bridging our new social studies curriculum with our ELA curriculum. First graders will continue participating in Writer's Workshop daily, focusing on different genres throughout the year. We follow the Bear Necessities: Be Kind, Be Honest, and Be Responsible. I look forward to a great year in first grade.
