Ms. Swantreca Taylor

Welcome to Byrd Middle School, city of champions! As I enter my 20th year as an English and Language Arts educator, the is my 8th year at Byrd Middle. I'm ecstatic about the the continued opportunity to do what I love.........teach. My objective as the 7th and 8th grade Resource English and Language Arts instructor, is to advocate for my students while creating a safe and comfortable learning environment where all students feel welcome and safe; equipping them with the skills needed to become successful. My collegiate years were invested at the University of Minnesota, where my accreditation was fulfilled with a Bachelor of Science degree in Family Social Service and Science. I’m the mother of a 21-year-old daughter, De’ja, who also attended Byrd, graduated from Duncanville High and is now attending school to be a dental hygienist. During my leisure time, I enjoy traveling, cooking and spending heartfelt time with my fiancee and family. The English and Language Arts department is looking forward to a very successful year!  The theme for my classroom this year is: "If It Doesn't Challenge You, It Won't Change You". We encourage you to become an active participant in your child’s educational growth.  I have extremely high expectations for my students. Parental involvement is also an requirement, in which, it will contribute to my student’s future academic excellence. Without hesitation, feel free to contact me with any questions or concerns you may have pertaining to your student.
