McKinney Boyd’s Tamara Taylor honored for outstanding teaching

McKinney Boyd teacher Tamara Taylor, who has been named the 2014 Outstanding Teacher for Region III by the Family and Consumer Sciences Teachers Association of Texas (FCSTAT), is passionate about preparing students for life at home and in the workplace.

“It takes more than cooking and sewing today to manage a home, and it’s not just the women that are doing it,” says Tamara Taylor, Family and Consumer Sciences teacher and advisor for the Family, Career and Community Leaders of America (FCCLA) student organization at McKinney Boyd High School.

“We are all part of a family in some way, and FCCLA is the only student-led organization in the nation with family as its focus,” Taylor said. “I am a firm believer that if we can strengthen families, our communities, states and nation will become stronger. When the family unit is strong, the individuals of those families will go out much happier, stronger and more confident to serve our community in positive ways.”

Boyd principal Dr. Jennifer Peirson said: “Tamara is an amazing teacher who has the biggest heart for our students. She not only teaches the content, but she absolutely loves and believes in what she is teaching, and that passion definitely shows through with her students,” says Peirson.

Under the guidance of Taylor and fellow teacher Rhonda Martin, the Boyd FCCLA chapter is thriving. Last year’s membership topped 120, and this year Taylor hopes to see even more students benefit from what the program has to offer.

“I have seen students grow in their confidence and and leadership abilities,” she said. “We have students of all ethnicities, economic statuses, academic levels and social levels. [The success of FCCLA] makes all the traveling, planning and long hours outside of school worth it when we see all these students breaking down barriers and working together.”

Three of Taylor’s FCCLA students are serving in high-ranking positions at the regional and state level. Boyd senior Elena Gonzalez is the state FCCLA Vice-President of Peer Involvement and will represent the organization at a national conference in Washington, D.C. this fall; fellow senior Savannah Preator is the Region III Vice-President of Public Relations; and Katherine Trout, also a senior, is currently serving as Region III Vice-President of Records.

Taylor says that her student officers work hard, putting in many hours over the summer and throughout the school year, and their sphere of influence is growing.

“FCCLA is truly student led,” Taylor said. “We will be hosting our Fall Leadership Meeting this year on Oct. 21 along with McKinney High School’s officer and Sherman High School’s officer. We are hoping to have over 150 students attend from different schools within a 60 mile radius of McKinney.”

Once known as Future Homemakers of America (FHA), the organization transformed itself into FCCLA fifteen years ago to reflect changes in the home and community, according to Taylor. FCCLA’s mission statement reflects a focus on preparing for “the multiple roles of family member, wage earner and community leader” while developing students’ “skills for life through character development; creative and critical thinking; interpersonal communications; practical knowledge; and career preparation.”

Appropriately, Taylor fills multiple roles herself in pursuit of that mission. In addition to her Family and Consumer Sciences classes, she also teaches Interior Design and Education and Training, a program that develops future teachers.

Taylor said: “Our [Education and Training students] work with elementary teachers and help them not only with grading papers, activity preparations or copies, our interns actually plan [lessons] and teach the students.”

And, getting a taste of teaching while still in high school gives students valuable experience toward their professional goals with fewer surprises later on, explains Taylor.

“The program allows a student to find out if teaching is what they thought it would be,” Taylor said. “For some, they actually decide that it’s not what they want to do, and although it’s sad to hear that a student doesn’t want to be a teacher after committing their time to the class, I’m happy for them that they find out now and not after their senior year of college.

“I love teaching. I love being around teenagers,” Taylor says. “I never feel like I’m going to work. Mind you, I work hard and spend many hours at home on lessons and FCCLA planning, but I can’t think of anything I’d rather do. I enjoyed high school, and now I get to help others enjoy high school each and every day and inspire them to go out and do good in our world.”

Frisco ISD speeding up construction on new elementary

The Frisco ISD Board of Trustees voted Monday evening to accelerate construction of a new elementary school to relieve Ashley Elementary in the northeast portion of the District.

Construction will now begin to ensure the campus is complete for the first day of school next fall.

The new school will be built on a site along Independence Parkway, across the street and just south of Independence High School, situated at 10555 Independence in Frisco.

Frisco ISD capped new student enrollment at Ashley Elementary School last month for the second straight year. Ashley is about 100 students above capacity.

The new school, previously known only as elementary No. 38, can now also be referred to by name.

Trustees approved naming the school for Armetha Norris, a respected parent and nurse who launched FISD’s school nurse system and school health program in 1978. She is a life-time member of PTA and was once nominated for School Nurse of the Year with the National Association of School Nurses.

School Board members also approved names for three other new schools:

    • Lebanon High School – Frisco ISD’s ninth high school was named for the community of Lebanon, which predates Frisco by about 50 years. Lebanon grew as settlers moved to Texas looking for land and opportunity, but was abandoned by many residents after the railroad was established further north. Still others stayed in the area and sent their children to Lebanon School until it closed in 1947, at which time they became Frisco ISD students.

      Lebanon High School, currently under construction near Lebanon Road and Ohio Drive, will open in 2016 with ninth graders only. Without high school #9, two of the high schools on the east side of Preston Road will be over capacity in 2016, with the other two pushing capacity.

    • Pearson Middle School – Frisco ISD’s 15th middle school was named for Charles Bishop Pearson, a member of the Frisco ISD Board of Trustees from 1960-1972. Mr. Pearson served as Board president for ten years and led the District and voters through several important decisions, including passing a bond to build Z.T. Acker Elementary, supporting a school band program and the vote to desegregate.

      Pearson Middle School is under construction near Stonebrook Parkway and Teel Parkway. It will open in 2015 to relieve Pioneer Heritage Middle School.

  •  Lawler Middle School – Frisco ISD’s 16th middle school honors the William Robert Lawler family for its long history of service to their country and contributions to the community. In 2014, son Roger Lawler donated $1 million to the Frisco Education Foundation to fund scholarships for graduating FISD seniors.

    Lawler Middle School will be built at the southeast corner of Coit Road and County Road 68 (CR 68), on land Mr. Lawler owned adjacent to his original farm in Frisco. The school will open in 2016 to relieve middle schools east of Preston Road.

Read more about the school namesakes.

Two other schools are also under construction that were named previously.

Reedy High School, named for former FISD Superintendent Dr. Rick Reedy, will open in 2015 at 3003 Stonebrook Parkway. It will serve students in ninth and tenth grade its first year. Reedy will primarily relieve overcrowding at Frisco High School, but Wakeland High School will need relief as well.

Trent Middle School, named for former FISD Fine Arts Director Dr. Daryl Trent, will open in 2015 at 13131 Coleto Creek Drive. Trent will relieve Stafford Middle School.

The process to create attendance boundaries for the schools opening next year will begin next month, with a final decision expected in December. Other needed zone adjustments will be made at this time as well.
