Welcome to the Johnson Elementary Title 1 Department! I am Kelly Turner, the Title I Specialist. My main role is to support students, teachers and parents with instruction. This includes providing training to teachers and parents, training and overseeing our instructional support staff, assessing students, coordinating testing, helping teachers with curriculum and providing resources for instruction. I also oversee the Title 1 program at the school.
I am a product of Mesa Public Schools. As a student, I attended Washington Elementary, Rhodes Jr. High, and Dobson High School. I graduated from Arizona State University in 1995 with a Bachelor's Degree in Elementary Education. In 2000 I completed my Master's Degree in Elementary Education through NAU. I also currently hold my ESL, Early Childhood, Reading and Math Endorsements.
This is my 23 rd year teaching for Mesa Public Schools. I began teaching 4th grade at Field Elementary and then taught 1st & 2nd grades at Porter Elementary. I also worked as a Specialist at Las Sendas, Patterson, Sirrine, and Entz Elementary Schools before my current role as the Title I Specialist at Johnson Elementary.
I am so excited and thankful to be here at Johnson where the staff puts students first! I believe that ALL children have the right to a safe environment and an opportunity to achieve at their highest academic potential. I am looking forward to working with the staff, students, and parents at Johnson this year! If you ever have questions for me, please feel free to contact me by email or phone (480)472-6769.
