Hi! My name is Taylor Thornton and I teach kindergarten at Cason Lane Academy. Teaching is my passion and I am so blessed to get to work at such a wonderful school in an amazing district. Furthermore, kindergarten is my absolute favorite grade to teach and I am so excited to get to work with my favorite age group every day!

I was born and raised in Knoxville, TN and had the opportunity to go to school in a wonderful community. I graduated from the University of Tennessee in 2016 with a BA in Psychology with a minor in Elementary Education. The following year I pursued my master’s degree at UT and completed a year-long internship at Lenoir City Elementary School in kindergarten. In May of 2017, I graduated with my master’s degree in Teacher Education and accepted a kindergarten position with Murfreesboro City Schools. In my free time I love to read books and run. My favorite book is “East of Eden” by John Steinbeck and I have run multiple half-marathons and one full marathon in Disney World.
