Ms. Amy Taylor


Welcome to the wonderful world of learning, living and growing together!  

My name is Amy Taylor, and I have the opportunity to teach exceptional children at Irmo Elementary School.  I entered teaching as a second career.  This is my seventh year teaching with a fantastic team of special educators.  After graduating from Wofford College with a Bachelor of Science, and from Winthrop University with a Master of Education in Mental Health Counseling, I began counseling children and their families.  Later, I was able to remain at home with my children before re-entering the work world.  I am mom to 3 amazing kids (ages 17, 15, and 10) who keep me focused on always trying to make the world a better place for them, others and myself.  We laugh a lot along the way and enjoy the adventure of living!
