Pat Taylor to Retire in June

Pat Taylor formally announced today that she will be retiring at the end of this school year. Mrs. Taylor, the Maggie L. Walker Governor's School's Coordinator of Curriculum, came to the Governor's School 19 years ago as one of the four full-time teachers when the school opened in August of 1991.

"I have wonderful memories of the students I have gotten to know as a teacher and as an administrator, parents who have provided support over the years, and educational leaders who have guided and supported the growth of this special school," Mrs. Taylor wrote in her letter to the Regional School Board.

“Pat Taylor, as one of the original planners or Maggie Walker, has been part of the heart and soul of this institution," said Director Fred Morton to the Regional School Board. "While we celebrate her opportunity to have more quality time with her family, we also will greatly miss her insights and wisdom. Over the next few months, we look forward to a number of occasions to celebrate her extraordinary gifts to this school.”

The staff, PTSA, and the Governor's School Foundation are in the processes of planning events to honor Mrs. Taylor's service to the school.
