Mrs. MaLinda Turnage

I am  Malinda Turnage.  I was raised in rural Lee County near Sanford, North Carolina.  I  moved to the Dunn area of Harnett County at age 14.  I graduated from Dunn High School in 1985. I attended Central Carolina Community College on scholarship working toward an Early Childhood Associates Degree.  I finished my Early Childhood Associate's degree and graduated from Johnston Community College in the Spring of 1989, with high honors and was among the first Early Childhood group graduating  with  this degree.  I began working in Johnston County Schools in 1989 at South Johnston High School in the Preschool Program and remained there for 4 years.  I then directed the Wee Care Child Development Center in Benson for 6 months and received my Directors Certification through the State of North Carolina for Levels One and Two. I began as a Teacher's Assistant and Bus Driver in February of 2003 at Benson Elementary School in Benson, NC. I was a long time teacher assistant in third grade and I worked several years in the Exceptional Children's Preschool classroom.  I  soon began attending Johnston Community College again and began my working toward my  degree in Elementary Education.  Once I had completed all College Transfer credits, I tranferred to Fayetteville State University in Fayetteville, NC.  I graduated Magna Cum Laude in December 2003 with my Bachelors in Elementary Education degree.  I did my Student Teaching program here at Meadow School in Fall of 2003, in 4th grade.  I was hired in January 2004 as a fourth grade teacher where I have experienced teaching in the areas of: Writing, Grammar, Spelling, all subjects, and lastly- my favorites; Science and Social Studies. I am very excited as my journey at Meadow continues in 6th grade this year and I will be teaching Science and Social Studies this year.  Meadow is a fantastic School.  The community based concept and strong parental cooperation and support lead to high expectations by the staff, administration, parents, and students.  We are a tight knit group and our students benefit from this unique combination. One of my favorite sayings is "It takes a whole village to raise a child." I believe that to be totally true.  Our children are a most valuable resource and their success is reliant upon all who are a part of their lives. Out School and JCPS Motto this year is "Each Child Counts, Every Moment Matters."  Lets work together to make Meadow School the very best we can be:)

  • Mrs. Turnage will begin teaching 6th Grade Science and Social Studies this Year.
