Hello! My name is Sheri Turner, welcome to my 2nd Grade website! If you are new to FES you're going to love our school! If you're already a student here welcome back!
A few things about me
I am married to my sweet husband of 32 years, we have two wonderful adult children, Shelley and Troy, and two sweet little dogs, Wilson and Sophie! We enjoy paddleboarding, kayaking, biking, camping, and all things outdoors! You might see us riding our bikes in Fairhope, kayaking along the bay, or paddleboarding on Magnolia River.
I graduated with honors from the University of South Alabama. I was also honored by my professors to receive a $1,000 grant from Alabama Power. It has been my joy to teach first and second graders for the past eighteen years. Eight years in Mobile County and the last ten in Baldwin County.
I am so thankful to have the opportunity to teach the students of Fairhope and make a positive difference in their lives. To encourage every student to believe in themselves and their ability to reach their full potential. To create a classroom community that fosters self confidence where every student works together to accomplish goals for the success of all.
"Our job is to teach the students we have.
Not the ones we would like to have.
Not the ones we used to have.
Those we have right now.
All of them."
Dr. Kevin Maxwell
