Mr. Taylor Plantt
Conceptual Chemistry and Physics
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 assistant job rather than my engineering studies, so I transferred to the University of Northern Colorado and received 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. Traveling 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 named 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.
