Since we first started dating five years ago, we have taught and designed lessons and units for 7-12th grade English. Between the two of us, we have endless resources focused on literary analysis, rhetorical analysis, writing instruction, grammar tutorials, and many more. We also have experience teaching high level courses such as AP Literature, AP Language, and AP Seminar. Today, we teach at Colegio Bolivar, an international school in Colegio Bolivar. Conor teaches 11th Grade AP English Language and Composition, while Taylor teaches 10th English.
We are known as ying and yang to our teacher friends. While Conor is extremely organized and logical in his teaching style, Taylor is more free flowing and enthusiastic. However, what we can agree on is our love of students. We always design lessons and units that are responsive to both our students' needs and the skills they need to succeed in the future.
We first met as members of the Teach for America Connecticut 2014 Corps. We then worked together at Achievement First Hartford Academy in the middle and high schools. While there, we earned roles as curriculum designers, facilitators, grade level team leads, and department heads. We also earned a 2017 Fund for Teachers Fellowship grant to attend the International Colloquium on Languages, Cultures, Identity in Schools and Society in Soria, Spain.
Conor attended Boston College and achieved his undergraduate degree in 2013 in Secondary Education and English. He then graduated from Boston College again in 2014 with his master's degree in Educational Research, Measurement, and Evaluation. Taylor graduated from Miami University of Ohio in 2014 and received her undergraduate degree in Secondary English Education. Taylor is currently enrolled at the University of Connecticut taking courses for her master's degree in Gifted and Talented Education.
