About The Speaker

Seeing double?! Not really! We’re identical twins named Morgan Mercado and Taylor Wallace. We were born and raised in South Louisiana and still currently live there. We graduated in elementary education from the University of Louisiana at Lafayette- go Ragin Cajuns! A year into teaching we decided to get our masters in gifted education from Arkansas State University.

We started our teaching journey at separate schools, but then came together at the same school we attended as children. Fast forward a couple years, and we are now partner teaching together in 4th grade! We are currently teaching 4th-grade gifted students. Mrs. Mercado teaches ELA and social studies while Mrs. Wallace teaches math and science. We also started a robotics club at our school and are passionate about teaching and learning!
