Mrs. Aida Raquel Taylor

Hello and welcome!  I am Mrs. A. Raquel Taylor and I am a proud Onslow County native.   My husband and I have 3 great kids, Swindell III, 26 and his wife Tori, 25 and Kaylyn, 22.  In 2003, after my husband was in a devastating car accident, I decided to go back to college. In 2006, I graduated with honors from the wonderful Watson School of Education at the University of North Carolina at Wilmington.  I have taught my whole career here at Bell Fork Elementary, starting with 1st grade from 2006-2011, 3rd grade from 2011-2018 and this will be my fourth year teaching 5th grade.  I am super excited to begin this journey and I wouldn't want to be anywhere but here at Bell Fork!  Proud Bulldog!!

One very important message I would like ALL my students and parents to know is that I am always available.  Your child and their education are very important to me and I give all my students and parents my cell number to call with ANY questions or concerns.  I take great pride in my profession and I have high expectations for all my students.  Together as a collaborative team, your child can be successful in 5th grade and beyond the classroom.

Be responsible

Follow directions

Everyone deserves respect

Strive for excellence



***Please do not purchase school supplies from the list for 5th grade. If your child will be in my class for the 2022-2023 school year, I've posted a supply list specific for my classroom. **
