Mrs. Vicki Taubken

2nd Grade Language Arts

Welcome to 2nd grade! My name is Vicki Taubken. This year will be unique in many ways and I am committed to your child's safety and academic success. I am so excited to be your child's teacher and am looking forward to a year of learning, exploring, and growing together! I have been a teacher for 9 years. I began working at PHES when the doors first opened as a kindergarten assistant and soon realized I loved being at school! I have been married to my husband Jay for 34 years. We have two children, a son, and a daughter. Both of them attended and graduated from DCS schools. They are now married and beginning families of their own. We have two grandchildren. Their names are Oliver and Ivy.  I would love to tell you about them ANYTIME. I am a member of the Olive Branch Church of Christ. I love my family, my church family, and spending time with them. I also enjoy home craft projects and movies!!
