Taylor Hendrix
I am currently in my first year (just started in this role August of 2022) at Wabash Valley Education Center! As a regional teacher recruitment coach, I am honored with the opportunity to work with ten school districts to develop plans for growing students into the teaching pipeline! I am eager to begin this mission and grow professionally in this new role.  

After graduating with my Bachelor’s degree in Elementary Education from IUPUI, I accepted a Kindergarten teaching position with Community Schools of Frankfort where I taught for three years. During this time, I also attended Ball State University to obtain my Master’s degree in Education Administration and Supervision. I have a deep passion for the field of education and serving others, which has ultimately led me to where I’m at today! 

My husband and I have been married for 3 years (together for 12!) and currently live in Lebanon with our four dogs! We enjoy attending sporting events, spending time with family, hanging out on our back patio, and traveling anywhere and everywhere any chance we get!
