Samantha Taylor


My name is Samantha Taylor.  I’ve been teaching since 2017 and at PCCS since 2020.  I have been married to my wonderful husband since 2012 and have three beautiful children.

We will have a great time learning how to access texts on a deeper level, strengthen writing skills, build strong decoding skills, use higher-level thinking skills and approaches, all the while appreciating what it means to be a reader and an 8th grader.

I can’t WAIT to get started!

Grading Policy:

Minor Assignments (warm ups, classwork, homework, work packets) make up 40% of a student’s average. 

Major Assignments (tests, quizzes, projects, essays) make up 60% of a student’s average.  

This rewards both grasp of our 8th grade ELA standards and student effort.
