Ms. Jennifer Taylor

I am beyond excited to be a part of the First Grade Team at Oakview! I have been teaching for many years, and while I have taught several grades, my heart is in 1st grade. I live in Apex with my husband, who is a Professor at NCSU (Go, Wolfpack!) and have 2 children. My son is a freshman at NCSU and my daughter is a junior in high school. I grew up near Chicago but have called North Carolina my home since 1997. You can find me cheering for the Wolfpack but I will always be a Chicago Cubs fan!

I love spending time with my family and friends. I also really enjoy running, reading, gardening, and visiting our family in Chicago and England. 


I look forward to working with you to ensure your firstie has an ‘owl’some year in First Grade at Oakview!
