Juli Taylor is the lead guide in our Upper Elementary classroom, bringing a wealth of Montessori experience accumulated over 10 years as a teacher, parent, and school administrator. She became a valued member of our school community in 2022, driven by the desire to provide her children with a Montessori environment.

She is passionate about meshing her knowledge of mental health and inclusion in her classroom.

Juli is native to the Kanawha Valley and is a twin parent of two Lower Elementary students. She and her husband Cody are high school sweethearts and self proclaimed nerds. During her free time, Juli finds joy in reading fantasy novels, caring for her house plants, being a sports mom, and engaging in activities such as video games, board games, and Dungeons & Dragons.
