Degrees and Certifications:
Welcome to Mrs. Turner's second grade classroom! I am very excited to be starting my 23rd year of teaching! I am a graduate of East Carolina University (Go Pirates!) with a BS in Early Childhood Development and Family Relations and BS in Elementary Education. I also served as a Reading Recovery Specialist and hold a K-12 Reading licensure, because my passion is teaching young readers!
I began my teaching career at South Smithfield Primary school, which is now South Smithfield Elementary, where I taught for 10 years. At South Smithfield I was a Reading Recovery Specialist, first grade teacher, and the Literacy First Specialist for the school. From there I came to Glendale-Kenly Elementary to teach first grade and now I will be beginning a new journey in second grade.
I have a beautiful family which includes my husband Dan of 25 years, my daughter Caroline who recently graduated from college, my daughter Emma who is a junior in college, and my son Daniel who is in the sixth grade here at GKE! Outside of school you will find me spending time with my family, at a ball field, or at the beach! I am the seventh child of eight so I come from a very large family! This makes for lots of family get-togethers and tons of fun!
I look forward to getting to know each of my students and building relationships with my parents! Together let's make this a wonderful school year!
Have a GREAT Summer!
