Kelli Taylor is the SMS Teacher of the Year AND Saluda School District's Teacher of the Year!



Ms. Taylor is Saluda Middle School’s teacher of the year for 2015-16. Although I have only known her for a few months, her hard work and dedication have been apparent. She is very conscientious to ensure that everything runs smoothly and that students are taken care of everyday. I know that with her involvement, any event we plan will be a success. She has already been successful in bringing the SOAR STEM education program to SMS. This program exposed our students to various science, technology, engineering, and mathematics concepts and careers through exposure to military equipment.

Ms. Taylor’s attendance is impressive with very little absences and often one of the teachers with the least amount of absences every year. She has been a leader on common assessments at the school level and the teachers appreciate her willingness to always assist.

Ms. Taylor’s students would say that she is very caring and motivating. She is obsessed with everyone in class learning and participating. She does not believe in letting students fail and will do whatever it takes to motivate them in their learning. I would like to take this time to thank Ms. Taylor for her hard work and dedication to Saluda Middle School. She truly embodies many of the qualities that make Saluda Middle School such a great place to work and grow. Thank you, Ms. Taylor, and congratulations.
