My name is Taurus Scurlock and I am delighted to serve as a Social Studies teacher at Crete-Monee High School. I have been teaching since 2000. I received my Bachelor's from UIC and my Master's degrees from DeVry University and McCormick Seminary. I live in the Western suburbs of Chicago. In addition to my teaching duties, I also coach Freshmen football at Crete-Monee and I serve as an adjunct professor of Religion and Philosophy at the College of DuPage in Glen Ellyn, IL.
My philosophy of education is straightforward! It is to make a difference in the lives of our students! It does not matter if it is academically, socially, or personally. It is my belief that as educators, we are training young adults for the next learning phase of their journey albeit, post-secondary studies, military service, or even the employment sector. My duty is to PREPARE my students for the next phase of their journeys.
I am EXCITED to be a part of WARRIORS nation!
