When she was growing up, Miss Andrea Taylor, South Middle School eighth grade reading instructor, never imagined herself becoming a teacher. She actually wanted to be a zookeeper or Supreme Court justice. She has always wanted to be a writer, though, and has been published in a magazine.
Miss Taylor went to college at Southwest Baptist University in Bolivar, Missouri. She worked at the Bridge at one time, but then decided that she might enjoy teaching more. She substituted before she actually became a regular teacher. Her friends said she'd be a great teacher so she went for it.
So far she really enjoys South. Ms. Taylor attended North Middle School and Memorial Middle School when she was our age.
"I learned that this is a part of life that matters, but there are always going to be other parts. Like that one quote, 'Don't sweat the small stuff, it's just small stuff.' "
