Hello Eagle Family!

Welcome to the 2016-2017 school year!!  My name is Nathan Lovelette and I am the Principal of Buddy Taylor Middle School.  I can’t tell you how excited and grateful I am to have the opportunity to serve the BTMS community.  This will be my 17th year in education, all in Flagler County. Over the course of those years I have held the positions of teacher at the elementary level and Assistant Principal at the middle and high school levels. Just about half of my time, seven years, was spent at BTMS.  During my time at Buddy Taylor I came to love the school, staff, students, families and the community with whom I worked closely.  I look forward to being able to forge new relationships and partnerships to better serve our students.

I would like to reach out and personally invite you to become involved in our school and our students’ lives.  Buddy Taylor Middle School is comprised of a group of talented individuals who have dedicated their lives and invested their time to help our students reach their full potential.  With that being said we are aware that we are surrounded by a very talented and caring community. The more we can work together to combine our time and resources the better we will be able to serve all of the students that walk through the doors each and every day.

At Buddy Taylor Middle we focus on the whole student and take a personal interest in their growth.  We know that is takes a group effort between the staff, students, family members and community to ensure our student success.  It is only through an open line of communication that we will achieve this.  Please do not hesitate to contact me or any member of our Eagle Family with any questions, concerns or suggestions that will help our students reach their full potential.

I look forward to all of the great things that will be happening at BTMS this upcoming school year.  Please join us on this journey and I look forward to meeting each and every one of you.
