Join us on this week’s Black Doctors Talk Podcast which features our guest, Dr. Zelpha M. Taylor. Dr. Zelpha Taylor is an educator with almost thirty years of classroom experience where she has mostly served students of color from schools on the island of Jamaica to the inner city of America. Dr. Taylor speaks on the power and passion of an educator to create change when they accept the call to, not only teach but, ensure all students are seen, heard, and valued.
During the podcast, Dr. Taylor shares her journey to becoming an educator as a small girl who had no idea of her superpowers but thought her purpose in life was to simply duplicate another’s journey. This was far from the truth. Upon getting a taste of the classroom, Dr. Taylor was transformed and realized her purpose to teach. Dr. Taylor’s approach to education is inclusive of a passion, love, and dignity for her students that encourages them to perform at high levels. She is the “in-house” cheerleader for student success and had an infinity to work with black and brown students. Without having a desire to transition into leadership, Dr. Taylor shares why she prefers to remain in the classroom. Dr. Taylor has plans for the future that will allow her to share her message with other teachers and express the notion teachers can love on students while ensuring the provision of learning opportunities.
Dr. Taylor earned a Bachelor of Arts in Geography and Social Sciences from the University of the West Indies – Mona, a Master of Secondary Education from Towson University, Baltimore, Maryland, a Reading Specialist Certification from Goucher College, Baltimore, Maryland, and a Doctor of Education - Teaching and Learning from Argosy University, Northern Virginia.
