Bonneville High School has been a home for Taelor Evans, one of the Algebra 2 and Honors Algebra 2 teachers, for five years. Through the ups and downs at BHS, Evans’ passion for education and students is the reason she started. Although her journey at BHS is coming to an end, her time in the classroom is not over. She will begin her new teaching journey at Shelley High School. Despite some indifferences with administrators, parents, and students, she has continued teaching due to her love of educating others.
Obstacles she faced along the way included “[h]aving long discussions with parents who do not see [her] point of view and administration has to get involved, or scolding students for disruptive and improper behavior in class and in the school.” However, these incidents were not what drove Evans to say goodbye to BHS. Her need to grow as a teacher and start a new chapter in her life is what ultimately led her to this new path. Evans mentioned that she is planning to keep an eye on her old students, as she is not moving far. Evans’ actions continue to demonstrate her passion for teaching, including her love for her students.
One of her favorite memories with her students is “field day.” Evans mentions, “When we are in our statistics unit in Algebra 2, we have a ‘field day’ where we go outside and throw and kick different balls around and collect data. We then use it in our lessons, and the students love it!” Unorthodox ways of teaching help students build closer relationships with peers and their teacher along with helping them better learn the subject at hand. Various methods of teaching are key for all different types of learners in the classroom. Evans creates a fun, interactive environment in which students are not only learning math, but they are enjoying the process as well.
Without a doubt, Evans will be missed at BHS, especially by her students. She left a positive impact by showing how teaching and learning can be enjoyable by thinking outside of the box. The math students at Shelley High School are lucky to be gaining a teacher as amazing as Ms. Evans.
