Mrs. Taylor Gross

Happy 2020-2021 School Year!

My name is Taylor Gross. This will be my third year teaching at Hazel Park Preparatory Academy and my fifth year teaching overall. This year is going to feel a lot different than any ordinary year. I fully believe that together we can make this school year a wonderful one. I know that open communication between myself and families allows us to ensure each kindergartener can be successful. Families and teachers are a team!.;l[‘;p

When I am not at school, I enjoy supporting Minnesota United FC, trying new foods, walking along the river, and spending time outside. I live in Minneapolis with my partner Alex and two cats, Neville and Stanley – named after two characters from Harry Potter. 

I am so glad to be back at Hazel Park for my third year. Even though distance learning comes with many challenges, I will do what I can to make each and every student and family feel comfortable with the changes. I will be patient and flexible and am so excited to begin this journey with you.

Remember, I am always a phone call, text, or email away!

Thank you!
