Taylor Deeley

Edge of Leadership Program Specialist 

Taylor joined the High 5 team in the fall of 2023. She works in the Keene schools as a Program Specialist with 5th-7th grade students and their teachers. Her passion for inspiring positive change through adventure learning was sparked when she worked as a challenge course facilitator at The EDGE at George Mason – dedicated to the Energize, Develop, Grow, Excel model. That spark continues to fuel Taylor’s dedication to working with students and teachers to foster stronger connections and active learning communities. “I’m thrilled to join Ryan, Anne Louise, and Chris on the EOL team to learn with and from such inspiring facilitators and leaders.”

In addition to challenge course facilitation, Taylor’s academic journey includes an undergraduate degree in Sport Management with a minor in Business Administration, followed by the completion of a master’s in Social Work. These diverse educational experiences have shown her that every student and teacher has a unique learning style and ability that deserves to be highlighted and built upon inside and outside the classroom. Taylor’s favorite EOL experience has been seeing those learning differences come to life through activities and discussions that spark a perfect combination of learning and fun – the same spark that has drawn her to experiential education from the start.
