Ms. Taylor Shields

Hi, McCulloch!


My name is Taylor Shields and I currently serve as the Speech-Language Pathologist (SLP) at McCulloch Elementary. Our school is a very special place and I am looking forward to starting my sixth year as an SLP in the school system with you! 


I earned my Bachelor of Science degree in Communication Disorders from Truman State University and my Master of Science degree in Communication Sciences and Disorders - Speech-Language Pathology from Missouri State University. Currently, I am pursuing my Master of Science in Educational Administration at Missouri State University.


To recharge and re-energize, I enjoy spending time with my people, attending sporting events and concerts, shopping, exploring National Parks, and spoiling my dog, Moose.


Communication is the golden thread that runs through everything! I believe every student should feel as though they belong and know that there is always someone cheering them on, only wanting the best. It is my goal to make sure each student that walks into my classroom knows their worth and potential.
