Mrs. Rachelle Taylor

Welcome to third grade with Mrs. Taylor!

I am very excited and honored to have the opportunity to teach your child. I have been blessed with 17 years of educator experience in all subject areas in early childhood - sixth grade. I earned my Bachelor's degree in Early Childhood Education at UAB and my Master's degree in Elementary Education at UAB. This will be my seventh year teaching at Paine Elementary!

I am in my ninth year of marriage to the most precious man and Trussville native, Thomas. We love living in Trussville and love our community. We have two beautiful furbabies, Bella (9 years old) and Baylee (3 years old). In addition to spending time with family, friends, and our pups in my spare time, I enjoy cooking, reading, singing, working out, and tutoring. I especially enjoy anything active outdoors, traveling, outreach with our church, and going to/watching Husky/Alabama football! Roll tide and MUSH!

Teaching was always a calling and goal for my life. I am passionate about my students, families, and Paine Elementary. I humble myself in taking your children under my wing as if they are my own to ensure they first feel loved and safe, and then flourish in their growth and development.

I welcome you families and students to our new school year! I look forward to developing lasting relationships with you all and helping your children learn and grow in THIRD grade! This will be a great year!
