    Hola! My name is Mr. Taril Slater. I am a native  of Alabama. I was born in Huntsville and grew up in Andalusia and Northport. I am the oldest and only son of 3. I enjoy reading, traveling, volunteering, dancing, sports events, fine arts, and mentoring.  I have worked with youth in various programs and organizations since I was a teenager. I seek to find ways to improve education for all and promote minority male achievement. I'm a firm believer that education is the key to success and that learning should never stop. The children are the future and preparing them adequately further increases our future to be bright.

    Thank you!

    Mr. Taril Slater M.Ed
