Degrees and Certifications:

Ms. Taylor Finkernagel

Hello! I am Taylor Finkernagel. I grew up right down the road in Chapin, SC. I graduated with an undergraduate degree in Elementary Education from the University of South Carolina, and now I am back at USC to persue my Masters degree in Language and Literacy.

My love for kids as well as my passion for teaching and inspiring led me down the path of education. I am very dedicated to my work, and am always looking for new ways to expand my knowledge and teaching techniques. Since I was in elementary school I have been an active swimmer. After school I get to coach Dutch Fork High School as their head swim coach.

When I do manage to find some time away from my lesson planning and swim practice, I enjoy traveling, spending time with my friends and family. Most importantly, I love going on adventures with my two dogs Ash and Blair.

I look forward to chances to meeting my future third graders and build new relationships.
