Master Elementary Education
My name is Susie Turner and I’m excited to be your child’s teacher this year. I have taught for 32 years. This will be my 16th year at Creek View. Before Creek View I taught at OLV School. I have taught Kindergarten and First. I have my Masters of Elementary Education from the University of Montevallo. In 2013 I was honored as Outstanding Alumni in Education from the University of Montevallo.
I am married to Barry Turner. He works for AT&T. We have been married for 40 years and live in the Oak Mountain Area. We have one son, Ben and a six year old grandson, Michael. My husband and I are raising our grandson. You child will hear many stories about Michael. We also have two sweet dachshunds named BJ and Baxter.
My husband grew up in Nashville, Tennessee. He is a muscian, has been worship leader in several churches. I grew up in Athens, Alabama on a farm with my mom and grandparents. My husband and I meet through church. We attended University of Middle Tennessee together and after college were married and moved to Birmingham. We both worked during college. Barry worked for Bell South which is now AT&T. We have lived here for 40 years. We presently live in the Oak Mountain Area.
I teach because I love working with children and seeing them learn. I teach because God called me to be a teacher. I’m excited to begin this year with your child. We will learn many new things and refine the old. We will become family in my classroom. We treat each other with respect and kindness. We share and help one another.
If you have any questions for me during the school year, just email me.
Thank you again for the privilege to teach and learn with your child this year. Oh yes, we are Alabama fans but nice fans.
