Taylor is high school mathematics teacher who in his work in boarding schools strives to empower young people as students, athletes, and members of their community. His passion for this work stems from the opportunity to get to know his students as multifaceted individuals and work with them at a time when they are figuring out who they are and how they want to impact the world. Oftentimes, people speak of teachers who inspire their students, but Taylor is attracted to teaching as much for the opportunity to be energized by his students’ passions. In fact, it was his work with two of his former students and current Youth Advisory Board members - Francesca and Lulu Ward - who inspired his interest in Rockflower.
Having had the opportunity to work with dynamic and inspiring young women in his career, Taylor is convinced that investing in and empowering young women and girls is the key to the future. Taylor and his fiance, Emily, are excited to partner with Rockflower to promote the Five Keys and support the S.O.U.L. Foundation Deliver With Dignity Campaign.
Beyond teaching, Taylor is most interested in exploring the outdoors in any form with Emily and their yellow lab, Morgan. He can most often be found running, rowing, cycling, or hiking. Taylor and Emily are honored to begin a partnership with Rockflower in celebration of their upcoming wedding.
