Taylor Bowles, a first grade teacher at Pioneer Elementary, is the Preston Rotary Club’s April Teacher of the Month. Taylor is also currently serving as president-elect in the Preston Education Association. 

She graduated with her degree in elementary education at age 20, because she “was eager to get into the classroom,” she said. She has an endorsement in math and has also earned her masters degree in elementary mathematics. 

She hopes to continue teaching, improving at her job every year, she said. 

“I want to have my students leave my classroom as kids who love to read, she said, and she also plans to keep adding up-to-date technology to her classroom.”

Taylor is married to Nick Bowles, and enjoys being on the farm with him. They plan on staying put, as the fifth generation of Bowles on the farm

She also enjoys yard work, and tries to travel as much as possible.
