Mrs. Taylor Rider



Welcome to 3rd grade, AGP! I'm thrilled to start year two in "The Woods" with you and your child. This is my 6th year teaching and I am very passionate about my job. I love my students fiercely and put a lot of time and effort into classroom community. We are a family and that includes you, parents! I'm here for you and your child and will always put their best interest first. Don't ever hesitate to reach out to me with questions or concerns. Open communication is my jam and no concern is too small. 


I have been married to my husband, Mike, for 20 years and we have three daughters. Caroline is in 11th grade,Meredith is in 9th grade and Jane is in 7th. We also have a yippy 7-year-old long-haired miniature dauchshund named Pappy. Our family loves to travel, hike, and cheer on our Clemson Tigers.


I'm proud to be a Purple Martin and love showing my Purple Martin Pride! #PMP
