Mrs Clara Taylor » Social Studies Teacher for 4th grade

Social Studies Teacher for 4th grade

I am happy to teach yet another year! This is my 42nd year to begin school. Some of my students are children of adults who were  once my former students. That is very special to me!  I teach 4th grade social studies which is American History from First time America formed colonies up to the years after the Civil War ended. 
I began my teaching career with 8th Graders teaching (you guessed it!) American History at Central Jr. High School which was in the present building of LCA.
I was born in Lincoln County and attended Fayetteville City Schools. I graduated from Central High School in Fayetteville, headed to MTSU, and graduated with a degree in Elementary Education.
Right away, I began a Master's Degree in Elementary Education.
About  10 years later, I worked on a certificate that was +30 hours beyond a Master's Degree in Education.
I came to South Lincoln in 1998 teaching a self-contained classroom of 6th grade.


2020 will certainly be remembered in history!

I know you are all excited to finally get back in a routine! I have missed seeing smiling faces! It will be a year we will all remember, no matter how young or old we are! Normal will feel good, instead of boring! In history, a hundred years ago was the Spanish Flu Epidemic. Going back to the days of our early history as a country, there was an outbreak of Yellow Fever (malaria) which was a mystery as to cause and transmission. George Washington was advised to flee the city to avoid it. People didn't know it was caused by mosquitoes that carried the disease. There was fear in every person much like today. 
This, Too, Shall Pass! 
Let's look forward to good times together as we embrace a look at formation of our great Nation!

An interesting website for all the fans of TN's history

Tennessee History for is a fantastic and well arranged website which I use with my students. Today, we took a "Trek Across TN" in which we saw the different elevations across TN.
