Katherine Ann Taylor is the choir teacher at New Haven Middle and High School; she is also the music teacher at the elementary school, where she is involved in a yearbook group as well.
Mrs. Taylor went to St. Charles West High School and graduated in 1998. In 2003, she graduated from Lindenwood University, where she double-majored in Music Education and Music Performance, specializing in all woodwind instruments.
Mrs. Taylor was asked what inspired her to become a teacher, and her response was, “My middle school band teacher, Mr. Drury-- he saw something in me at a time I needed it the most.”
She said her favorite thing is teaching music theories because it interests her the most.
When questioned about why she wanted to work in New Haven, she responded, “I enjoy the students here. I have had most of them since kindergarten and it has been wonderful watching everyone grow up through the years.”
Mrs. Taylor has three brothers and one sister. She has two daughters, one who is 10 years old, and the other who is 5 years old. She is very passionate about her family because, according to Mrs. Taylor, they are everything to her.
Mrs. Taylor was asked some little trivia questions about herself, and here’s what she had to say. One of her pet peeves is disrespectful people. Her favorite shows are “Dr. Who”, “Supernatural”, and “Criminal Minds”. Her favorite type of movies are musicals and Sci-Fi movies. Her favorite foods are pizza and Chinese food. And finally, a quote she wants students to know about is “Be better than you were yesterday.”
Thank you, Mrs. Taylor, for being part of the New Haven community. Also, thank you for being part of our Tradition of Excellence!
