Mrs. Allison Taylor
Hello! My name is Allison Taylor. I have had the pleasure of working at Loudoun County Public Schools since January 2011. This is my second year at Smart's Mill Middle School. Prior to teaching in Loudoun County, I worked for a national scholarship foundation where I worked with high achieving, low-income adolescents. After working with the students in the program, I knew that I wanted to work more with children and earned my Masters degree in Education at George Washington University in Washington, D.C.
I currently live in Leesburg, VA with my husband and eight year old son. In my free time I enjoy cooking, music, and traveling. Some of my favorite places I have visited are Ireland, Scotland, Hawaii, and New Zealand.
In ELL, we focus on providing experiences that will build on the students’ language foundations. This includes speaking, reading, listening, and writing. While following the county’s ELL curriculum, I work with the classroom teachers to assess the needs of the students and determine a program that will best suit each child. It is so rewarding to watch our students gain the confidence they need to grow academically and succeed as English language learners.
