Taylor Huss : Grade 6 Advisor
Mrs. Taylor Huss originates from the United State, in the scenic state of Utah. She recently graduated from Moody Institute located in the beautiful Spokane, WA. She and her husband accepted jobs at ZKIS when they were finishing up their degrees at MI, and are so thankful they did. She teaches ELL, PSME and assists in English classes. During her time at ZIS she hopes to inspire within the students a desire to care and serve each other, those they surround themselves with, and all those they come into contact with. Her time in China, so far, has been enjoying some of her favorite things (surprisingly): meeting and making new friends, eating incredible food, and laughing! She is excited to be a part of an incredible faculty here at ZIS.
