Mrs. Taylor Knuppel

Hello! My name is Mrs. Taylor Knuppel (Mrs. K) and I am so excited to be teaching music at Paine Elementary (south campus)! This will be my 3rd year at Paine. My husband and I live in Trussville. We have a black labrador retriever that is 4 years old. His name is Oscar! He is the sweetest dog and loves music...just like his mom! We are also excited to be welcoming our daughter, Emerson Jo, to the world in October 2021!

I am a graduate of the University of Alabama where I graduated with a bachelor's degree in instrumental music education. While I was a student, I was a member of the Million Dollar Band! I am currently working on my Master's degree online through the University of Florida, pursuing a degree in Music Education. I am looking forward to an awesome year and working with you and your student!
