Grace Taylor will be the principal at George Washington Middle School next year. Superintendent Rebecca L. Perry announced Taylor’s selection at the School Board meeting last week.
“Ms. Taylor has significant secondary school experience in highly diverse settings,” Perry said. “Plus, she is a native Alexandrian and an alumna of T. C. Williams.”
Taylor received a bachelor’s degree from Emory University in Atlanta and a master’s degree in educational leadership and supervision from Georgia State University. She began her career as a teacher at Lithonia High School in Decatur High School, where she worked for five years. She became assistant principal for instruction at Lithonia. After that, she became the principal of Cross Keys High School in Decatur.
Just prior to accepting her current position as the associate principal at T. C. Williams High School, she served as the principal of Centaurus High School in Boulder, Colo.
Taylor will replace Robert Yeager, who is retiring.
