Advice to Incoming Students

Cultivate a strong relationship with the Lord. Be open to serve in the ways He has called for you.

Why I Came to Taylor

I came to Taylor University to serve in the mission of preparing teachers with a biblical worldview of the field of education. I desire to prepare university students to be leaders in the field as well as to be the salt and light to their students, parents, and colleagues.


Tammy enjoys running and reading both fiction and non-fiction.
