Mr. Taylor

Greetings to all and welcome to school year 21/22. I am Ray Taylor the physical education teacher at Nance elementary school.

I have been here at Nance since January 2014. I have enjoyed over 35 years of teaching multiple grade levels and subjects. I also have vast and extensive experinces in sports, recreational activities, coaching and sports officiating. Some of my past accomplishments are I was a two sport letterman in high (school football and basketball). I earned a basketball scholarship to attend Harris-Stowe State University and lettered during all four years of attendance. I was a high school and college basketball official, advancing to the NCAA Division II and NAIA Division I levels.

As I ease toward the day I can retire I can say I have enjoyed teaching and touching lives in a positive way. Their is no greater joy than to communicate with former students and they share how I impacted their life.
