Katy Taylor

Hello! My name is Katy Taylor and I am in my 6th year at Indian Lake Middle School. I teach reading and math to students in the resource room for grades 5-8. I have a Bachelor's Degree in Special Education Mild/Moderate K-12, a Master's Degree in Secondary Level Education, as well as a Master's Degree in Reading and Math K-6. This is my 16th year of teaching and I love every minute of it! My first 10 years were spent at Sidney Middle School as an intervention specialist. Nine of my years were spent in 6th grade, but the last year at Sidney was in 5th grade. I enjoyed my time there, but because my children started kindergarten a few years ago at the elementary, I wanted to be a Laker, too! I absolutely love my job and couldn’t be happier with the district! I also have many nieces, nephews, cousins, and friends of our family attending school at ILS. 

My husband, an IL graduate, and I have been together for 18 years. We have 7 year-old twins that are in 2nd grade this year, and I also have a 20 year old stepdaughter. We became grandparents recently, too!  

In my free time I am a photographer and started my own business called Custom Taylored Creations. I do mostly portrait photography and have many clients from the Indian Lake area! I love photography almost as much as teaching and am very blessed to have two careers that make me happy!
