Hello and welcome to Greeley West High School! My name is Taylor Plantt and this will be my third year teaching science here at West. As a graduate of the Greeley public school system, I care deeply about what it means to be a Greeley West student. After graduating from Greeley Central High School, I went on to seek a degree in Electrical Engineering at the Colorado School of Mines. However, after a couple years I realized my true passion fell in my tutoring and teaching assitant job rather than my enginnering studies, so I transfered to the University of Northern Colorado and recieved a bachelor's of science degree in Physics with an emphasis in Secondary Education. I later earned a Master of Science in Curriculum and Instruction from Western Governors University.
Some of my interests include engineering design, video games, and working in my wood shop. Travelling has also been a life long passion of mine and recently I was a chaperone for a student trip to Costa Rica over Spring Break 2018. I am fortunate enough to have an amazing wife who teaches elementary school in the district. I also have a dog name Mira and a cat named Gretel! This summer I was able to present at the Denver Comic Con with a panel of other teachers here at West.
