Degrees and Certifications:

Mrs. Taylor Brady

Hi, my name is Taylor Brady and I am so excited to be here at Murphy Elementary. I come to Murphy as a second year Special Education Teacher. I earned my Bachelor's degree in Corporate Communications: Advertising and Public Relations from Lindenwood Univeristy - Belleville while playing four years of college volleyball. I also earned my Master's degree in Leadership and Organizational Development from Saint Louis University (Be a Billiken!). Recently, I earned my certificate in Elementary Education and Special Education from the ABCTE program. 

I have been married to my husband Jim for over a year and a half and we have two amazing (and spoiled) dogs, Sparky and Rigby.  We are also expecting our first child in December of 2022.

In my spare time, I love to walk my dogs, attend or watch University of Kentucky basketball games, spend time with my friends and family, and watch reruns of Friends. 

Watching students make progress, succeed, and build relationships with them and their peers is one of my favorite things about being a teacher! I love my job and cannot wait to get this school year started. Feel free to reach out to me at any time:
