Welcome Message:
Hello students and parents of Taylor Middle School!  My name is Travis Motal and I am the principal of Taylor Middle School here in Taylor ISD.  Our campus is made up of about 700 6th, 7th and 8th graders from all across the district.
Our staff is dedicated to focusing on what is best for students.  We strongly encourage you to visit with your child's teachers as often as possible through notes, email, phone calls or face to face meetings.  Our teachers understand the value and importance of parent support and involvement in the success of students.
Our doors are always open for any questions, comments or any feedback you would like to share.  Please feel free to email me personally at tmotal@taylorisd.org and follow me on Twitter @TaylorISDMotal.  We are committed to being the district of choice and we know with your support we will continue to make great strides together.
Personal Information:
I am married to my beautiful wife, Anjie Motal and we are proud parents of two kids, Emma and Ben.  We have a small dog named Cooper and we enjoy doing lots of things together as a family.  I have attached a picture of my family below.  I graduated with a Bachelor's degree in Criminal Justice and a Master's degree in Educational Administration from Texas State University.
I began my teaching career as a 5th grade teacher and was immediately hooked on doing all I could to see students improve and succeed.  I soon realized as a campus principal, I could have a tremendous impact on many students' lives in a positive way and began pursuing a goal to become a campus principal.  I proudly served as an assistant principal for 5 years and then got the opportunity to be principal at Main Street Intermediate in Taylor ISD for 3 years.  All of those experiences have now set me up for the opportunity to be the principal at Taylor Middle School.  I am very excited for this upcoming school year and I know we will do some wonderful things for the children of Taylor, TX.
I love being a principal in Taylor ISD!  One of the best parts of my job is getting to talk with so many students and parents and members of the community.  I am excited to watch the students grow into successful learners and leaders.  I personally welcome everyone to come by our school and hope you make the choice to enroll your children in Taylor ISD.
