My name is Rachelle Taylor and I am one of the Pre-Kindergarten teachers this year. I have been with Red Deer Catholic since 2004. I began teaching in middle school but the smallest children stole my heart.
I am a graduate of Red Deer Catholic. I went to high school at the school my children attend. My journey to teaching was a convoluted one. Teaching is actually my second career. My first was very far removed from teaching the little ones. I proudly served our country in the Canadian Armed Forces for 14 years, in the combat arms. I knew I was called to teaching as even in the military I naturally fell into the role of teacher within the regiment. I do feel it was God’s plan for me to journey as I did. I gained many insights along way that aid me in the work I do with children. I obtained my Bachelor of Educations from the University of Alberta.
I’m blessed to be married for 26 years. My husband Paul is a pilot, and God entrusted us with 2 beautiful children. Our daughter Abigail is in Grade 9, our son Ethan is in Grade 6, they both attend École Camille J. Lerouge. We have a dog Winston, a fish Archimedes, and 2 budgies Loki (is lavender), Hermes (is green, blue, and yellow).
