Taylor Horrocks

Taylor was nominated for her work as an intern with Terra Academy.

I can only imagine how miserable I would be if I didn't try to bridge ties with my student and find out what can alleviate his frustration. I have learned that being a teacher is more about being a decent human being, than someone who simply reiterates information.
