ST. LOUIS – Saint Louis Public Schools have presented Dr. Gregory L. Taylor with the Middle/High School Mathematics Teacher of the Year award.
Dr. Taylor teaches at Carnahan High School of the Future, and was selected for inspiring his students to excel and help them reach their potential.
"It is very evident that the students respect Dr. Taylor," said Carnahan High School of the Future Principal LaTasha Jones. "It is not uncommon for students to request to be in his class, even knowing the subject matter may be difficult, because they also know they will learn in his class and be prepared for the next level. He is able to break down the intricacies of the math he teaches so that the students relate to it. Former students have attested to not liking math before being taught by him. Students who were hesitant about taking his class have come to enjoy their learning experience. His teaching style is professional, respectful, compassionate, and thorough."
Before teaching at Carnahan, he taught at Evangel Christian School and in the Fox C-6 School District. He joined Carnahan in 2008.
