Welcome Parents and Families!  

My name is Jennifer Carpenter and this is my seventh year teaching kindergarten, I had previously taught second grade for four years. This is my first year with Taylor ISD.  I was with Elgin ISD for my first 10 years of teaching. I was born in Arizona and raised in Taylor, Texas.  I now reside in Taylor with my husband, Joe, 9 year old daughter, Cadence, 5 year old son, Cyrus, and our 3 dogs.  We are almost completed with the building of our new forever home in Granger.  I graduated from Taylor High School and then went on to Texas State University and graduated in 2007.  


Teaching is my true passion.   I am looking forward to a fun filled and fantastic year exploring with your child.  As a teacher, I will encourage and support by:

Providing opportunities for parent involvement
Having high expectations of myself, staff and students
Providing safe and positive environment for learning
Communication regularly and openly with parents
Recognizing and respecting cultural differences
Demonstrating care and concern for each student
Providing parents with regular reports on progress
Providing high quality/developmentally appropriate curriculum


Please feel free to contact me with any questions or concerns.  My conference time is from 12:20-1:05pm and my email is or you can also call the school office at (512) 352-2275.  I truly look forward to getting to know you and your child.
