Meet Our Principal
Dr. Angela Anglin-Taylor
Principal, Propel Northside
Hometown: Covington, Georgia
Years with Propel: 3
Entering her third year with Propel Schools, Dr. Taylor has served as the Principal of Propel Northside and the Assistant Director of Pittsburgh Urban Leadership Corp. She earned her AA at the Community College of Allegheny County, her BA and MA at Carlow Univeristy and her Ed.D from Argosy University in Atlanta, GA.

Her primary goal for the 2017-2018 school year is to be a catalyst for increasing teacher and leader effectiveness and advancing student achievement. In addition, she says that it is essential that all stakeholders, including parents and community members collaborate and identify with Propel Northside as a home that fosters educational excellence and loves children.
I am #PropelProud because….as a principal that has served many years, in various roles, in the traditional public school setting, I find Propel to be a refreshing public school alternative. Choosing a Propel School means desiring a heightened level of caring, social and academic support. We value children, families and social justice in a way that is authentic and fosters development of the whole child. In short, I am Propel Proud because I work for an organization that places the needs of children first!
