Degrees and Certifications:
Welcome to Mrs. Turner's second-grade classroom! I am very excited to be starting my 25th 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 am beginning my third year in second grade.
I have a beautiful family which includes my husband Dan of 27 years, my daughter Caroline who recently graduated from JCC, and my daughter Emma who graduated from Campbell Univerisity. Both of my daughters are nurses! My son Daniel is in the eighth grade at NJMS! 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!
