Seneca’s Taylor Fanning – Teacher Spotlight – Presented by Flooring USA

Teacher of the Month recipient Taylor Fanning has been teaching for four years. She’s currently in her second year at Seneca High School, where she teaches family and consumer sciences. The transition to Seneca has been an easy one, according to Fanning.

“The staff really stood out to me,” Fanning said. “They have great camaraderie with each other and everyone is helpful and not afraid to lend a hand. The community here is always quick to support the school and provide for the needs of the school district. And the students were very welcoming and receptive to whenever I started working here.”

Fanning’s also the junior high volleyball coach and is in her second year as the assistant girls’ basketball coach. Fanning’s favorite part about being a teacher and coach is getting to know her students.

“I enjoy building strong relationships with my students,” Fanning said. “I know how important a relationship with a student can be toward their learning process.”

When it comes to what it takes to become a teacher, Fanning had some sound advice for those thinking of a teaching career.

“You have to have the heart and desire to be around people in general,” Fanning said. “You have to have a great work ethic, determination, and perseverance. You don’t leave school every day thinking you love your job. But you have to keep telling yourself that you need to be there for your students no matter what and that everything will get better.”
