Hello there! Welcome to our classroom blog.
I continue to build excitement for the upcoming school year and have been working really hard in our classroom to get it ready for each of the wonderful students that are going to be here this year
If you haven’t met me yet, I’m Ms. Turken, a fifth grade teacher in Kirkwood, Missouri. This is my 8th year of teaching and I have an exciting learning opportunity ahead of me this school year. In the past, I have taught first grade, second grade, and English to both children and adults. This is the first time I’ll be teaching fifth grade, but truly believe that my prior teaching experiences have prepared me for this year.
As a technology explorer, this is my second time having a blog. My first was during my ten months in Ecuador. As a matter of fact, I just wrote the last post on that site today. If you’d like to read about my time in Ecuador, please do so at http://www.im4ecuador.wordpress.com
My hope is that this blog will give my students and their families insight into what we do in our classroom on a frequent basis. I also hope that this site will clearly communicate my reflections on teaching throughout the year and the opportunities for growth – both for my students and for myself.
Please partner with me on this journey and let’s see where it takes us!
