Heather Taylor

Heather Taylor graduated from the University of Windsor with a teachable in English, and a Bachelor’s in History and Education.  Throughout her early years and educational training, Heather worked closely with the North American Black Historical Museum and the Canadian Heritage Tours.  She taught many local age groups Canadian Black history, and the importance of studying history from a “bottom-up” perspective.  As an African-Canadian woman and a profound interest to her ancestral history, Heather values the importance in diversity, educating children, and addressing the importance of gender and racial equality on a global scale.  Heather fulfilled her teaching passion during her emergency supply with the public-school board for three years.  In 2015, she gladly joined Lakeview Montessori School full-time.  Today, she continues to thoroughly enjoy teaching elementary Language, History, and Visual Art.  During her time with Lakeview Montessori School, Heather picked up her MYP training for IB Language and Literature.  This has enhanced her skill to teach students how to think critically, artistically, and to challenge norms both locally and world-wide.  Heather’s art classes strive to do exactly that.  She aims to inspire children at Lakeview to independently invent, think, and create while building their self-esteem: “The art of teaching art is loving who and what you’re teaching.  I absolutely adore what I do here at Lakeview.”
