Mr. Taylor has been working at La Joya for four years now as a history teacher, and he also coaches the boys basketball team. His Students would describe him as wise, intelligent, funny, knowledgeable, caring, and awesome. He went to San Francisco University, then he went to the University of Kansas to work on his Doctorate.

“I wanna work for as long as I can. I’m having fun” said Mr. Taylor.
