The Family and Consumer Sciences Teachers Association of Texas recently named Tamara Taylor the top family and consumers sciences teacher in the state.

Taylor is a teacher at Boswell High School in Eagle Mountain-Saginaw ISD in north Fort Worth.

“I was taken by surprise,” Taylor said. “I feel honored to have a fellow Family and Consumer Sciences teacher outside my school district think of me to nominate when they were asked who would be deserving of this award.”

Dana Eldredge, the district’s director of career and technical education, described Taylor as exemplifying excellence in education.

“She consistently goes above and beyond to ensure her students receive a top-notch education in family and consumer sciences.” Eldredge  said.

Taylor has taught at Boswell High School for five years. She has been a teacher for 16 years.

“I want my students to not only learn and understand the Family and Consumer Sciences content that I happen to be teaching that day or year, but learn how to set goals, formulate plans to achieve those goals, problem solve and manage their resources to become successful adults and leaders in their homes, careers and community,” she said
