Liberty Memorial Central Middle School has selected its current academic interventionist, Brandy Taylor, as the school’s next assistant principal and athletic director, according to a news release from the district.
Taylor joined the district in 2020 as a social studies teacher at LMCMS. Prior to that, she taught for eight years in Topeka, where she also served as a reading interventionist and completed an administrative internship, according to the release.
“I am excited about continuing to work on the relationships that I have developed with our students, staff, and families during my past two years at Liberty Memorial Central Middle School,” Taylor said in the release. “We look forward to focusing our attention on helping our students feel safe in the classroom and building on the lessons we’ve learned during these challenging times.”
Taylor succeeds Brent Burns, who has resigned after six years at the school.
LMCMS Principal Anne Hawks said Taylor brings strong instructional leadership to the role.
“She is focused and driven. She models integrity for our school community and inspires positive change,” Hawks said in the release. “Brandy has worked hard to build strong relationships with students and collaborative relationships with staff that will provide a strong foundation as she begins her first administrative role.”
Taylor’s position will be effective July 1, pending school board approval.
