• Welcome back to school! 

    This is a Monarch butterfly.  Our class enjoyed watching it through each stage of its life--from the egg, to the caterpillar, to the chrysalis and finally to this beautiful Monarch!  Plant milkweed in your yard and you just might get a visit from a Monarch.  Milkweed is the only plant Monarch caterpillars will eat.

Mrs. Jon Maria Taylor

Welcome to my webpage!
I am excited about another year of learning and working with your children!  I work with students in small groups in the areas of reading, writing, math and/or social skills depending on the goals targeted in their IEPs.  This year marks my 37th year of teaching--5 years as an elementary Art teacher and 32 years as a Special Education teacher. Prior to teaching in Cabarrus County, I taught in Texas and Iowa.  I have three grown sons, five cats and two dogs.  My husband is a professor in the Department of Reading and Elementary Education at UNC Charlotte.  I love spending time with family, going to antique stores, flea markets and thrift stores, camping and gardening. My family and I are big fans of the Houston Astros.  I am fascinated with Monarch butterflies (actually all butterflies) and enjoy raising them from eggs I find in my backyard.  Please feel free to contact me anytime you have questions or concerns.
