Taylor Durant

Grade 5

Hi, I am Taylor Durant.

I teach grade 5 part time along with Kathy Gerritsen at Wheatland Crossing. I love the excitement and enthusiasm that our class has towards learning.

I graduated from Standard School in 2014. I still reminisce on all the wonderful memories and friendships I created while attending Rockyford and Standard School. I worked as an Educational Assistant on a Hutterite Colony for four years while I completed my Bachelor of Education degree through the University of Calgary.

I recently got married in 2019 and my husband and I enjoy spending time with our families, being outdoors, and going boating in the summer. I also enjoy riding horses at my Grandpa’s farm with my younger sisters. Each year I volunteer to judge speeches for 4-H after being in the Rockyford 4-H club myself.

I believe that all children deserve to learn and that every student can be successful when given the proper support. It is important to me to create a safe, caring, fun and engaging classroom. Building professional and positive relationships with my students is one of my favorite parts about teaching.

I am so thankful and proud to be part of the Wheatland Crossing School and being able to work with the amazing students!
