    Boones Creek. I really love my Boones Creek family!  I was a reading interventionist for Kindergarten
    through 4
    th grade for six years. I also taught Kindergarten, 1st grade, & 3rd grade for one year. I have now taught
    2nd grade for 5 years. 2nd grade is by far my favorite age group! :) I really enjoy working with young children.
    Growing up, I always knew I wanted to be a teacher. I enjoy seeing the kiddos grow and flourish each year.
    I feel very blessed doing what I love!

    this past February. He is in 5th grade here at Boones Creek. He is all boy!
    He loves sports, Minecraft, and Pokemon.The kids hear lots about Noah.
    He is the light of my life. :) I am also engaged to my fiance,
    Jonathan. We will be married this October. I will soon be a Mrs. Turner.
    And I will soon have a new step-son, Luke. It is an exciting time in our lives.
