Mrs. Taylor Culjan – Holocaust Educator10543649_10204519576978189_5809387873123922589_n
My name is Taylor Culjan, a graduate of St. Peter the Apostle in 1995 and SVA Class of 1999. This is my twelfth year teaching young adults, and my fifth year teaching at Saint Vincent’s Academy. I have previously taught at the public school districts of Wilkes, Chatham, and Bryan County Schools. I am a graduate of University of Georgia with a Bachelor’s of Science and Master’s of Science in English Education. In August of 2013 I earned my Specialist’s degree in Educational Technology from Lesley University. I live in Savannah with my husband, Bo, and our two daughters, Anna and Natalie, who are nine and three years old.

This summer, I was granted the opportunity to travel to Eastern Europe through a program sponsored and organized by the Savannah Jewish Federation, the Matthew Cranman Memorial Fund, and The American Gathering of Jewish Holocaust Survivors & Their Descendants, where I visited a number of sites connected to the Holocaust, including the concentration camps of Auschwitz, Bełżec, Bergen-Belsen, Majdenek, Plaszow, Ravensbrück, Sachsenhausen, and Treblinka. As a Holocaust scholar and teacher of Holocaust literature, this was a trip of a lifetime for me. Although I had studied and taught about the Holocaust for many years, this summer was a pivotal moment for me both as an educator and individual. Not only did those 21 days strengthen my passion for teaching about the Holocaust and promoting social justice, but they proved to be a journey of personal growth and reflection. I plan to spend this school year and many more to come imparting my experience with my students at Saint Vincent’s.
