Hi,  my name is Franklin Elrod and I am the Physical Education Teacher here at Taylor Elementary.  I was raised in the Taylor community and am very proud to have the opportunity to give back in any way possible.  I have a beautiful wife of fifteen years her name is Angie and two awesome blessings from God.  Jared is 9 years old and in 4th grade at Taylor and Calli is 5 and is begginning kindergarten this year.  I will also be coaching the 4th and 5th grade boys basketball team this year.
