About The Teacher
Hello! My name is Cristal Taylor and I am so excited to return to the Norte 4th grade team this year! It’s going to be a year full of fun, learning, and lots of adventures, so I can hardly wait to see what the year has in store for us!
I was born and raised in Iowa, then joined the Air Force never to return to Iowa again. Instead, I moved all over the country, including New Jersey, Texas, Washington (state), and Oklahoma until finally making it here. I am married to my wonderful husband of over 21 years, Dean. We have 4 great kids, our youngest is a junior at ASU. I absolutely love the awesome Phoenix mountains and sun, trying to hike as often as the heat allows.
It is my mission to teach not only academics, but the love of learning to my students. If they learn to love it, they will love to learn it. I believe in the power of “Yet”; some students have not learned to love it, YET! Throughout the year, please let me know if you have any questions or concerns. It is so important to keep communication open between our classroom and families. I look forward to a fantastic year together!
