Mrs. Taylor, Principal

Hello, From Mrs. Taylor

I am Dyisha R. Taylor, a native of Sumter, SC. At a young age, I knew I wanted to be an educator. Each day after school, I would rush home to teach a lesson to my imaginary class. I still carry that same passion with me in Marshall everyday. It is an honor to be the principal of such an extraordinary school.

I attended South Carolina State University and graduated Summa Cum Laude with a Bachelor's. degree in Elementary Education. There, I became a member Alpha Kappa Alpha Sorority, Inc. I later attended the University of South Carolina and earned a Master's Degree in Education Administration. I continued my professional growth by obtaining an Education Specialist degree from SCSU.

Throughout my practice, I have served as an educator in Richland School District 1 and Richland 2. While in this role, I received National Board Certification and was named Magnet Schools of America Teacher of the Year. For the past three years I have served as a Teaching and Learning Coach for the illustrious Orangeburg Consolidated School District Five. It's a privilege to be back in the district that gave me my start in this profession.

Though I am proud of the work that I've done in the educational realm, the titles that I cherish the most are wife and mother. I am the proud wife of Robert C. Taylor, and the mother of two sons, Charles and Dylan Taylor.

The best is yet to come at Marshall Elementary. Our school will be a place where students achieve greatness and build character. I thank you in advance for your support this year.
