Mr. Taylor Strode

Welcome to Visual Arts.
Hello and welcome to my Visual Arts page. The last year has been a chaotic one and I look forward to welcoming students back to my classroom. It is my belief that the arts are an integral part of the education process and are interconnected with all we do in our lives, both in and out of the classroom. 
This will be my 10th year here at CHS and my 17th overall.  My classes are an opportunity for students to learn new skills, develop, appreciate, and gain understanding both in the arts and the world around them, in hopes of creating well-rounded and educated global citizens.  I was honored to be named 2017-18 CHS Teacher of the Year.  Aside from the arts, I am also the varsity women's soccer coach.  Outside of school, I enjoy spending time with my wonderful wife, my two step-sons and our amazing baby girl.  Please feel free to contact me with any questions or concerns you may have.
