James Irvin Education Center
Our Assistant Principal, Dr. John Taylor
I love learning! I earned a B.A. degree in Religion from Cumberland College (now University of the Cumberlands) in 1983 and a M.A. in Religious Education from Southwestern Baptist Theological Seminary in 1986.
In 1996, I received my M.A. in Special Education from the University of South Florida and my M.A. in Educational Leadership in 2000.
In 2007, I completed my graduate studies from the University of South Florida with a Doctorate (Ed.D.) in Educational Leadership and Policy Studies.
I began teaching in Pasco County in 1996 as an Exceptional Student Education teacher at Pasco Middle School. In 2002, I taught briefly at Chester Taylor Elementary before beginning my administrative career as the Assistant Principal of Adult Education for Moore Mickens Education Center, Pasco High School, and Zephyrhills High School. The following year, I became as Assistant Principal at Zephyrhills High School and served there until 2014.
During the 2014-15 school year, I served as the Assistant Principal for both Moore Mickens Education Center and James Irvin Education Center. Beginning in 2015, I am the Assistant Principal at James Irvin Education Center with the additional responsibilities of overseeing the Adult Education Program for the east side of Pasco County.
When I’m not working, I love to go bass fishing whenever I can.
