Taylor is an 8-year-old second grader at Southside Elementary School. Taylor considers herself an artist and loves the art programs at the Club. In addition to artistic pursuits, she enjoys gymnastics, reading books by R.L Stine, and the color pink. Her favorite subject in school is music and she loves to sing warm-up songs while doing sign language in class. And while Taylor loves basketball, she admits that Tom Brady is her favorite athlete. The staff at the Roberts Learning & Achievement Center wanted to highlight Taylor because she is charismatic, listens attentively, and follows all of the Club rules all the time. Her participation and creativity make her a joy to have in our programs.
