Roxanne Turner graduated from Bradley University with a Bachelor’s degree in Education. She joined the Prairie Crossing staff in January 2014. While she has been a member of the 5/6 team since then, fall 2015 marks her first year as an official classroom teacher. Ms. Turner’s classroom expectations branch out from the single word: “respect”. With respect for others’ ideas guiding the way, she is excited to collaborate with students and parents alike, in order to build the strongest community possible for positive learning experiences and personal growth. She plans to aid students in accomplishing personal goals, which they will set for themselves. Additionally, she aims to support students as they continue developing study skills, personal organization, and responsibility.Ms. Turner is passionate about caring for our planet and she has set a personal goal to incorporate “natural learning” into her classroom whenever possible. She hopes to include recycling projects, cooking using ingredients from our gardens, and possibly a classroom pet. People may not know that Ms. Turner is a five time donor to Locks of Love. She enjoys working with the students here at PCCS and she is very excited to see the great things they accomplish this year!
