Tayler Maiers

Hello! I am Tayler Maiers. I am a senior at the University of Northern Iowa with a major in Elementary Education and a minor in Literacy. I will be student teaching in the Fall 2018 Semester. After student teaching I hope to either get a job around the Cedar Falls area or somewhere down south on the beach, either way, I hope to teach the lower elementary grades (Kindergarten - 3rd Grade).
