Mrs. Taylor - First Grade Teacher

Mrs. Phyllis Taylor,

Greetings Matteson School Family to the 2023-2024 school year!  Mrs. Taylor is the first-grade teacher at Matteson Elementary and she is excited to work with everyone towards another year of growth and learning.

Mrs. Taylor’s career in Matteson School District 162 began this year.  She has worked with students in the suburbs starting as young as eight weeks, up to High School.  Mrs. Taylor was a classroom teacher for two years at Nazarene Daycare. She has also worked as a Substitute Teacher at Crete Monee High School.  Over the past eight years, Mrs. Taylor enjoyed developing relationships with the students and families at Crete-Monee School District 201-U.

Mrs. Taylor lives in the Matteson School District with her family.  She has two daughters, Suganna, and LaShaunda, and son Anthoney. In her spare time, she enjoys teaching and raising her five grandchildren.  When they are not indoors studying, they are outdoors going to the park, learning to ride their bikes, and hanging out at the beach.

Mrs. Taylor looks forward to continuing to build relationships with students, families and community members within Matteson School District 162. She believes that this is an exciting and a very important year because this is the year first graders learn to read!  Looking forward to assisting in helping our students to SOAR to Excellence and this is what we will strive for every day!
