With two degrees in Physics, saying the subject is a real passion of mine is an understatement, and I firmly believe Physics is accessible to all.
After completing my teacher training, I worked at a Secondary School in the UK with around 2,000 students. It was there that I began working to develop the curriculum and my own teaching practice to increase access to Physics for everyone, with a focus on increasing access for women.
At BISC South Loop, I enjoy working with the entire faculty and students to increase the profile of a subject that is close to my heart. The students are wonderful; they amaze me every day with their fantastic ideas and empathy for others. They always seem to enjoy coming to school, which hasn’t always happened at the other schools I have worked at – and it has a lot to do with the collective atmosphere created by our curriculum, ethos and amazing staff.
I am a very quirky, imaginative, and passionate person, and also a great listener. I am probably one of the few people that enjoys politics and have become a bit of an expert in U.S. politics. I love to travel, chill out, dine, play computer games, and my favorite pastime - baking. I am a massive fan of "Game of Thrones" (enjoying both reading the books and watching it on HBO). I am an advocate for equality in the classroom and beyond, and inspiring the next generation of scientific thinkers whomever they are.
What Students Say

"Mr. Taylor genuinely cares about us, he has helped me so much thinking about and choosing colleges, but also about how I will get there. In class I owe my sense of wonder to him, a true inspiration."
"Fun, imaginative, and sometimes a little crazy…by crazy, I mean good crazy!"
