• Hello!  My name is Barbara Taylor.  I started my teaching career as a regular classroom teacher at B. Everett Jordan Elementary in 1996.  I taught 4th Grade for 4 years and 1st Grade for 3 years.  For a while my job was stay-at-home mom, and then I came back to education as a teacher assistant at Alexander Wilson Elementary.  Because I enjoyed working with English Language Learners, I decided to take the test to get an add-on license in English as a Second Language.  This is my second year teaching ESOL at Newlin Elementary School.  I have worked with 3rd and 4th Grade ELL's both years. 
    I have a wonderful husband and two children who keep me very busy.  One of my favorite activities is running.  I am a member of the Mebane Running Club and I enjoy competing in 5K's, 10k's and half marathons.  I also love kayaking, hiking and camping.
