Meet Ms. Taylor
Hello, my name is Lora Taylor. I am a product of the Vigo County School Corporation. I went to Pimento Elementary, Honey Creek Middle School, Terre Haute South Vigo High School, and Indiana State University. I love working with children and teaching! I was raised on a farm and have a deep love for animals.
I have been teaching at Hoosier Prairie for 25 years. When I first started teaching for the VCSC, I was at Terre Town Elementary. After two years at Terre Town, I was able to relocate to my “neighborhood” of Hoosier Prairie and became the first Title/Chapter 1 Reading Teacher under the infamous Darrell Roundtree. He was my sixth grade teacher, by the way, at Pimento Elementary School! I’ve since then taught Transition, 1st, 2nd, 4th and 5th grades. My mother, Judy Pearson, was a retired teacher from Hoosier Prairie. I am currently the treasurer for the Vigo County Teachers’ Association and enjoy working with many of the finest teachers in the state of Indiana through our Association!
I have two children, Jordan and Madison. My son and daughter in law, Samantha blessed me with two granddaughters, Delaney and Freya. I love being a “Grammy”! We have three horses, a pony, three dogs, and 10 cats. We live on a farm in the Hoosier Prairie district. My family and I enjoy showing our American Quarter Horses at shows throughout the midwestern states during summer months. We are a very active family and stay quite busy!
I am looking forward to a great school year with my second grade class. I encourage parents to come spend the day with us in our classroom. I may have to put you to work though, as we could always use another pair of hands to help out. However, I promise, you will have a fun day with us!
