Beatrice Taylor

My background includes teaching 4 year olds, 1st, 2nd, 3rd grades self-contained, 4-8 science, and university courses. I initiated the elementary certification program for LeTourneau University in 1998. In 2001, my travels took me to Shanghai, China, where I opened and functioned as Academic Dean for the only school in China that allowed both nationalists and foreigners to go to school together. I have taught for and supervised student teachers for Lord Fairfax CC, ODU, and UTTyler. One year was spent as a science facilitator for Tyler ISD. My certifications include K-8, ESL, elementary and middle school principal. My terminal degree is a PhD from Virginia Tech. I have also operated several summer science camps.
