Meet Our Director

My name is Taylor Varnum and I have been working in the Education System in the state of Florida since 2015. I attended the University of South Florida and received my Bachelor’s Degree in Literary Studies – as well as obtaining my License to teach Secondary Education. I started working at Ladybird Academy in 2019 after leaving the public school system as a secondary educator in Hillsborough County. This transition followed shortly after I had my son and chose to enroll him – here – at this very Ladybird Academy. As an educator, I have taken a vow to provide not only the best educational experience to students, but also to offer guidance of both heart and morality. With dedication and willfulness to meet these higher standards, I have fortified my foundation of practices and policies within the classroom, building upon the bricks of: education, acceptance, patience, and unfaltering love. I look forward to welcoming you to the family we have here at Ladybird Academy of Fishhawk.

What Our Parents Are Saying

We were on the waiting list for months before Ladybird finally opened and we were pretty apprehensive of what to expect with it being so new.

After only 4 weeks I can tell you that this place is amazing. The center itself is obviously incredible, the attention to detail and play rooms are next level, but it is also the care we receive, communication from teachers and management has been good and the school itself is very flexible and accommodating to my needs which was an important factor in choosing this school.
