About Mrs. Turner - Getting to Know Me

  • Welcome to my class! The summer of 2020 has been very unique for all of us! COVID kept me primarily at home. Luckily, we have a pool and we would have small groups of people join us for a little swim.  My husband and I live in Grayslake with our dog, Arya, who is a Lab/Beagle mix.  I adopted her from Save-A-Pet in 2013, where her large, brown, hound eyes stole my heart instantly. She definitely keeps us busy with her quirky personality and endless amounts of energy.  With spending so much time at home this summer, we took Arya on many walking adventures around our neighborhood.

    My husband and I are excited to share that we expecting our first child at the end of October. Her name is Emily. I will be on Maternity Leave from 10/29/2020 - 2/17/2021. 

    I am excited to continue as a Bobcat at W.C. Petty this school year!  This will be my sixth year working in Petty. Before Petty, I was a 5th grade classroom teacher at AES. Before AES, I was at Oakland Elementary as a Math Aide, Special Education Aide, and a Reading Interventionist. With experience in a variety of school settings, my heart and passion is in the classroom, teaching 5th grade.  I absolutely love teaching about American History! Also, who doesn’t love place value and fractions?!

    I am very excited to start a new school year! Teaching is my passion and I love that I get to share my passion with your children.
