Ms. Edra Taylor
I am a native "Tallahasseean". I received my Bachelors of Science degree from Florida A&M University in Mathematics. I later attended the University of Southern Mississippi in Hattiesburg. There I received my Masters of Arts degree in Education (Curriculum and Instruction with an emphasis in Mathematics). I started teaching at Lawton Chiles High school in the Fall 2001. I have taught numerous subjects at Chiles such as Algebra 1, Geometry, ATM-Advanced Topics in Mathematics, Trigonometry, Math for College Readiness, and Dual Enrollment Math classes.
I believe every student can learn. When a student comes in my classroom ready to learn with an open mind it is my job to help them gain the knowledge to understand the material. I love teaching and watching the imaginary "light bulb" come on over the head of a student when they finally understand the material. I enjoy helping students learn and grow into mature adults.
Now you know a little about me. I can't wait to get to know you.
