Hello Woodland Wildcat Families!

My name is Allison Taylor and I am the new principal at Woodland Elementary. I am very excited to have the opportunity to work with you and your child during their elementary years. I wanted to start the process of getting to know each other by providing you with some information about me and giving you the opportunity to tell me what you feel makes an amazing elementary experience. Family and community input is very important to me in the decision-making process for our school. Thank you in advance for your input!

A little about me...

My husband and I have two beautiful children, Sydney age 11 and Lincoln age 8, and I can’t leave out our faithful dog and my running partner, Hector. We spend the majority of our free time outdoors playing golf, fishing, or floating on the pontoon where I can usually be found with a book in hand. During my educational career, I have held various positions, teacher, instructional coach, and principal. My career started in Vicksburg and I finished this past year as principal of Hoppin Elementary in Three Rivers. I am a very passionate educator who believes that all students can be successful if they are provided with choice, voice, engaging lessons, and communication between home and school. I believe that it is important to learn about our students and help them to see gifts in themselves that they may not realize yet. I also believe that we could not provide the high-quality education that we do without your support and communication. Please feel free to contact me at any time with any questions, concerns or celebrations that you may have. Thank you so much for your partnership in your child's education! I am honored to be your child's principal. Let's make this the best year ever!
