Originally from Cascilla, Miss., Taylor moved to Cleveland in 2004. “I graduated from Delta State in 2008 with a Bachelor of Science degree,” said Taylor. “I started working at the child development center five years ago after completing my internship. I love working with children and teaching them new things every day.”
