Hello Eastern Heights Families!

I am Gia Taylor and I started at Eastern Heights Elementary in 2012 as the building Content Coach. Currently, I am the Learning Lead for Eastern Heights. I love my job!  My teaching certifications stem from a BA of Science from Philadelphia College of Textiles and Sciences in Fashion Design. I moved to Minnesota and obtained my teaching certification from the University of St. Thomas and my Master course work in Gifted and Talented Education from the University of St. Thomas as well. I have taught grades 3, 5 and 2 over the course of my teaching career and I have enjoyed all.  I continue to enjoy teaching and impacting the lives of young minds.

Teaching is a joy and a pleasure for me, however my life outside of school keeps my coming back for more. I enjoy working out and going to Lifetime Fitness, reading, sewing and watching my own children's sporting events. I have a passion for art. I love to draw and create and bring those creations to school and get my students involved in those creations as well.

Eastern Heights is a wonderful school with an awesome teaching staff and student body! I enjoy the challenges and joys of teaching and working with our staff everyday.  Below is a favorite quote of mine from the late Dr. Martin Luther King Jr. ,"Darkness cannot drive out darkness; only light can do that. Hate cannot drive out hate; only love can do that."

My door is always open.
