Mr. Troy Taylor
Hello GES family and community! My name is Troy Taylor and I am coming to you from Fultondale Elementary where I served as an Assistant Principal for two years there. Before that, I taught grades 9-12 at Hueytown High School. I am a resident of Gardendale where I live with my wife of six years and our son who is two years old. I am a product of JEFCOED, where I graduated from Corner High School. I attended Chalkville Elementary, Hueytown Elementary, and Bagley Jr. High as well. I am a huge fan of the Alabama Crimson Tide, Atlanta Braves, and Golf. I love being a dad and spending time building things with my hands. Education is a passion of mine and someday I intend to be a superintendent.
I am looking forward to serving this community and be supportive of the students who walk in our doors. Gardendale is a great city and a great community. I am fortunate to be in this position. I hope that you know that we are going to do everything we can to support your students. The job of schools is to always help students find success. I love getting to get up every day and hopefully make a difference in the lives of the students who are in my care. Let me know if I can ever be of assistance. We are here to serve!
