Dogs grow pretty much at the same rate. She should be at about 75-80% of her adult weight and about 90% of her adult height. She probably has a few more inches to go in height and likely will be between 75-80 pounds. Here is a growth chart for dogs below. She appears tall because they get their height first and the weight catches up later.

Yes you can still work with her, but I'd start now and do intensive obedience training with her. The following site is helpful in helping owners train their dog. Be sure and click on the link to the page on obedience at the bottom. and links on subsequent pages leading to detailed instructions.
Training works best if you train at least 30 minutes a day (two 15 minute sessions). I would start making your dog work via the Nothing in life is free program (NILF). It is outlined below.
I'd also do as many formal classes as you can. Even if she goes through a whole class and knows her commands perfect. What class does is help you socialize her around other dogs and people. Be sure and spay her if she isn't already. It will help with aggression that often comes with her maturing into an adult female around the heat cycle.
