- About A-State
M.C Taylor is an educator, instructional designers and creative thinker who wants to give all students a real-world chance at realizing their life’s ambition of meaningful employment, promising wages, and a happy life.
In her 35 years as a secondary and post-secondary educator in the state of Arkansas, Taylor witnessed the struggle many high school graduates experience with their first year of college. As a four-time published curriculum writer, Taylor began to see the value in offering students industry certifications that would serve as a training tool for students to enter the workforce.
Taylor and three fellow educators set out to write curriculum that addressed an alternative path to employment success.
M.C. focused on helping students become successful in the transition from school to the world of work. She and her team created a curriculum currently being used today that is helping students receive several portable industry certifications in the areas of career readiness, food service, retail industry, and job safety.
M.C. Taylor is currently an Adjunct Instructor at Arkansas State University in the Nutrition Science Program. Taylor earned her B.S. in Home Economics Education from the University of Arkansas at Fayetteville and her M.S. in Family and Consumer Science from the University of Central Arkansas in Conway. She was a Nationally Board-Certified teacher 2004-2014 and sponsored students in the Career and Technical Student Organization, FCCLA, at district, state, and national levels.
