Mrs. Turner

Welcome!

I am so thrilled to be your child’s first grade teacher.  It is going to be an amazing year full of fun and engaging learning.  I can’t wait to see what we will discover this year.  I thought you might want to know a little bit about me.

I am married to my wonderful husband Jon, who is a captain with the MCSO.  We have two sons, Cole (3rd grade) and Sam (1st grade).  Both of my boys attend Eighth Street.  Most of my time is spent at home with my family.  We love to spend our time outdoors.  We enjoy gardening, running (together as a family) and watching both our boys play baseball.  

I am born and raised in Ocala and graduated from the University of Florida in 2001.  I have worked with children for quite some time.  I taught at Grace School as well as St. Paul’s Christian School.  My husband and I are active members in our church’s children’s ministry and have taught horseback riding lessons for years….(which is another passion of mine).  

I love working with and teaching children.   I love their curiosity, willingness, and I love watching them grow.  I am so grateful to be apart of the Eighth Street staff and family.  I believe that open communication is a huge aspect in your child’s education.  Please feel free to contact me with any questions or concerns that you may have and I will do the same.  

Thank you again for your support!

Mrs. Turner
