1st Grade


Welcome to Mrs. Taylor’s First Grade Class

        My name is Mindy Taylor and I am going to be your child’s first grade teacher. I was a teacher’s assistant for thirteen years, the last five years of that thirteen here at Overpark Elementary. I loved being in the classroom so much that I decided to go back and finish my Bachelor’s degree in elementary education a few years ago. 

        I graduated from the University of Mississippi. Go Rebels!! I am married to my husband, Danny, and we have two children, Drew and Meg, 2 grandchildren, (Zeb, whose almost two years old, Aubrey, two months and a new little one due in November).

        My assistant is Ms. Lisa Davenport. She has two grown children, Paul and Julie, and three grandchildren. She and I are both very happy your child is in our classroom.

        I know your child is precious to you. I feel very blessed to share this year with your child as well as you. I will treat every child in this classroom with the same love and respect that I wanted from my own children’s teachers.

      This is going to be an exciting year. First grade is so much fun! Your child is going to learn so much and have a great time doing it. I look forward to working with each of you in the effort to progress your child’s education. If you ever have a question or a concern, please let me know. You may send a note in your child’s folder, call the school (890-8745), or contact me by email. My email address is
