Ms. Grant has a degree from Syracuse University in inclusive elementary and special education. While in college, she was honored to be selected for the unique opportunity of completing her student teaching semester in New York City. Since that semester, she has grown to love living and working in New York more each day. She then taught kindergarten for two years at a charter school in Fort Greene.
Ms. Grant is excited to evolve her role at BASIS Independent Brooklyn as a Subject Expert Teacher focused on math and science in the primary program. She was previously a 1st grade Learning Expert Teacher. She was first drawn to BASIS Independent Brooklyn, since she appreciated a community where children are challenged academically while also given the flexibility to pursue their own passions and interests.
Ms. Taylor enjoys reading, drinking iced coffee, spending time with her dog Cooper, and cooking any recipe that includes cheese. She also loves Broadway shows and has spent a large portion of her summer trying to win tickets for Hamilton.
