Tackling teaching

Jhnathan Taylor

Johnathan Taylor, a defensive end for the Detroit Lions, is completing the last three credit hours required for his bachelor’s degree in early childhood education at Montana State University by student teaching this semester at U-M–Dearborn’s Childhood Development Center.

Taylor, a rookie who was injured in the preseason, says becoming an uncle at the age of 6 made the pursuit of an education degree an obvious choice. “I’ve always been around kids. It’s just second nature to me,” Taylor says. “I’ve learned a lot and it’s good to have something to fall back on once my football career is over. I get more joy out of teaching than pretty much anything else. I know I will miss the kids at the end of the semester.
