Kevin Taylor - Principal
My name is Kevin Taylor and I am the principal at South Belton Middle School. I am originally from Western New York State. I served in the active Army for nine years: Five Years at Fort Hood and four years in Korea. I also served for eleven years in the Texas Army National Guard and Reserve. I deployed for Operation Iraqi Freedom as a member of my National Guard Unit in 2003 and retired from the National Guard in 2008.
I am a graduate of the University of Maryland (Associates of Arts), the University of Mary Hardin-Baylor (Bachelors of General Studies), and Tarleton State University (Master of Education Administration). I taught second and third grade in Killeen ISD before coming to Belton as an assistant Principal in 2002. I have served as an administrator at several campuses in Belton including Belton Intermediate, Tarver Intermediate, The Disciplinary Alternative Education Program, Henry T. Waskow High School, Belton High School, and South Belton Middle School. I have been at South Belton since the school opened in the fall of 2011.
I am the father of five children (two of whom are currently teachers) and I have one granddaughter. I have been married to my wife, Michelle (also a school administrator), since 1987.
I decided to become a teacher when I inherited my daughters’ pre-school Sunday School class at Camp Hialeah in South Korea, when the teacher abruptly went back state-side. I was instantly hooked on working with students! I enjoy their energy, their inquisitiveness, their different personalities, and their differing perspectives. I enjoy witnessing the growth in students’ intellect and personality, which I am allowed to help facilitate as part of the team here. I look forward each day to serving students, parents, and teachers. If I can be of assistance to you or your student, please feel free to drop me an e-mail or call the front office for an appointment.
