Miss Taylor Harling

Hello! I am so excited to be your child’s teacher for the 2023-2024 school year! I cannot wait to get to know your student and learn just how smart, kind, and unique they are!

I want to start by introducing myself to you. My name is Taylor Harling and I was born and raised right here in Aiken. In my spare time, I enjoy serving in my church, crafting, reading, and spending time with my family and friends. Some of my favorites include Amazon shopping, Sprite, chocolate, flowers, & anything gray or purple. I graduated from the University of South Carolina Aiken with a BA in Early Childhood Education and from Clemson University with a Masters degree in Literacy. This is my seventh year teaching. I am very excited to be at Redcliffe and even more excited to be in kindergarten with your student!

If, at any time during the year, you have any questions or concerns, please don’t hesitate to contact me. 

I would also like to introduce Mrs. Vanderhoff, our aide in the classroom.

Hi! My name is Melissa Vanderhoff. I am Ms. Harling’s Aide. I am looking forward to working with your child this year and watching them grow. This is my 15th year at Redcliffe. I am married with 3 children and 1 grandson and 1 granddaughter. I live in Beech Island. Some of my favorite things are painting, crafts, chocolate, and pens. I love to collect pens. I like the colors blue and turquoise.

We are going to have a great year learning and growing together!
