Hi! My name is Stephanie Turner. I am currently a Reading Specialist at John Kerr Elementary School. I began my teaching career in 2004 as a Kindergarten teacher. I taught Kindergarten for eight years, before becoming a First Grade teacher. After teaching First Grade for three years, I became a Reading Speciialist. Reading is my passion. I absolutely love sharing that joy with my students.
I am a Winchester native. I graduated from Handley High School in 1999. After graduationg high school, I attended Lord Fairfax Community College, and recieved my Associates Degree from there. Upon completion of my Associates Degree, I attended Shenadoah University, where I majored in Elementary Education. I then returned to Shenadoah University, a few years after getting my Bachelor's degree, to complete my Master's Degree as a Reading Specialist.
I live in Winchester with my husband and two children, and our dog Bally. When I'm not at school, I really enjoy spending time with my family and being outdoors.
