Lori Taylor » Welcome


Hello! I’m Lori Taylor! I teach Career Preparation 1 in the Career & Technology Education department at Texas School for the Deaf.

I have B.A. in Hospitality & Food Service Management, and an M.A. in Human Resource Career Development from the National Technical Institute for the Deaf at Rochester Institute of Technology (NTID/RIT).

In my 8th years at TSD, I have been a teacher for Principles of Hospitality & tourism, Job Coach and a Culinary Arts Teacher in addition to my current position. Before coming to TSD, I co-owned D.T. Deaf Services in Rochester, NY for 10 years. I also have extensive experience in job placement and more than 15 years of experience in restaurant, hotel and corporate food service. I’ve worked in multiple food service locations such as a hospital, nursing home, Wheaton College, RIT/NTID Cafeteria, and more. I’ve been in the food service industry since high school!

My husband, John, and I have two children, Dalton and Jayne. Currently, Dalton is freshman at Gallaudet University, and Jayne is in the 8th grade at TSD. I enjoy outdoor activities such as camping and hiking. I love to watch mystery and drama movies.

The best time to contact me is during my prep time, on M/T/W/Th/F: 8-9 AM or email me.
