Dr. Toetta Taul Named New Principal at Iroquois High School

Taul has nearly 20 years of experience in education

Dr. Toetta Taul is officially taking on the top role at Iroquois High School after serving in the role as interim principal for the last several weeks. Before that, she was the assistant principal for the school’s freshman academy. 

“Dr. Taul is a proven AIS leader, and we are excited to have her lead Iroquois High School,” JCPS Assistant Superintendent of Accelerated Improvement Schools Dr. Nathan Meyer said. “Dr. Taul understands school improvement and has the tools to continue to accelerate student outcomes. Dr. Taul will not only strengthen Iroquois but the entire AIS office will benefit from her expertise. We are thrilled for her to get started.”

Taul has nearly 20 years of experience in education, dedicating her entire career to JCPS. She started as a substitute teacher for the district in 2002 before accepting a special education teaching position at Olmsted Academy North in 2004. In 2007, she moved over to the same role at Marion C. Moore School and also worked as a resource teacher. She moved to the Academy at Shawnee in 2015 to become a priority school special education consulting teacher. In 2016, she pulled double duty, working as an adjunct professor at Georgetown College and the assistant principal for the freshman academy at Moore. Dr. Taul took the same role at Iroquois High School in December 2019. 

“I'm so honored and blessed for the opportunity to serve as principal of Iroquois High School,” Taul said. “I am committed to the students, staff, and community of Iroquois, and endeavor to ensure a safe learning environment that promotes student advocacy, equity, and academic success. I look forward to the work that we'll do together and to improving outcomes for all students.”
