Taylor Cookingham

I was born and raised in Georgia, Vermont but moved to north Alabama during middle school and have lived there since. I graduated in May 2016 with a degree in Elementary Education and Nutrition from the University of Montevallo, a tiny college outside of Birmingham, Alabama. I have a sweet puppy named Rylee who is my best friend and we love to go on adventures together. I first visited Honduras in July 2014 and have been back a few times. I absolutely fell in love with the beauty of the country. I absolutely cannot wait to combine the two things my heart loves, teaching and Honduras. This will be an adventure I will cherish forever and I’m looking forward to what lies ahead!

Teaching two grades ensures that my days are always different. These students have so much energy and life in them that it makes each day an adventure. Each day I go to school exhausted and wishing I was in my bed still and then I hear the first little voice yell, “MISS TAYLOR,” as they come running at me and I’m so happy to be at school. Each day I spend with them, they fill my heart a little more. Teaching such young ages is so much fun because I get to see all the growth, academic and physical, with each of them and it’s exciting to watch.
