Ms. Amanda Taylor
Hello Students and Parents/Guardians,
I am Amanda Taylor, the Choir Director for Maryvale High School. This is my tenth year at MHS. I have lived in Arizona my entire life and am a proud graduate of Maryvale High School, class of 2007. After my time at MHS, I attended Northern Arizona University and graduated with a Bachelors degree in Music Education, with an emphasis in choral music. After teaching for a few years, I decided to further my education at Grand Canyon University. At GCU I earned a Masters degree in Curriculum and Instruction, with an emphasis in Technology Integration in the classroom. I am excited to be back for another year at MHS with my wonderful students.
My philosophy is:
"It isn't about you (the teacher). It isn't about the music. It is about them (the students)."
