Mr. Tim Taylor

The school year 2019-2020 will be my 6th year as principal at Gandy Elementary. It will be my 26th year as a principal and my 33rd year in education. I have attended several colleges and universities in the state of Arkansas and hold a BSE in Education and an MSE in Educational Leadership. I have two grown children, both married. My wife is a retired school teacher of 35 years. I have two dogs, both elderly and very much a part of my family. Education is my passion and I consider my staff and students to be family. I play acoustic guitar and enjoy college sports. I love to travel and visit new places. I am a former member of the Arkansas Association of Elementary Principals Board of Directors and have served as an AdvancEd School Accreditation Representation for Arkansas Public Schools.
